This sweet-tasting finger paint is a fantastic textile experience for young and old alike. The entire family will enjoy the smooth texture, pretty pastel colors and the delicious smell and taste of this paint. Play some music while you paint and completely enjoy this sensory activity.

Glossy Finger Paint

1 can sweetened condensed milk
several drops food coloring
muffin tin or ice cube tray

Mix ingredients together. Use fingers to paint paper plates or paper (feel free to lick your fingers as you paint). Paint will be pastel and glossy when dry. For a really shiny picture, try painting on the shiny side of aluminum foil (may take longer to dry).
