Dish Soap Paints
I'm always looking for new fingerpaint recipes to try because I love introducing Baby Bear to new sensory experiences. So far, each paint recipe we've tried has had a different texture, consistency, and what I like to call"goop factor." Our latest fingerpaint recipe came from Tipnut, and it consisted of equal parts water, dish soap, and flour. The texture was smooth, the consistency was medium-thick, and the goop factor was high. Dish soap paints hold their color well, are sticky, and work very well for fingerpainting. Although these paints are easy to wash off (and probably leave surfaces cleaner than before you painted), I don't recommend telling your child that these paints consist of soap. He may just decide to rub them all over his body to "wash!"
