"We did a variation on this that worked really well. We used a baby-safe liquid soap placed inside a sturdy freezer bag. Then, we added food dye to the soap and sealed the bag tightly. After taping down all sides of the bag to his high chair tray, we let the baby 'paint' without having a mess to clean up. He loved it! "

"I agree about a paint that would be edible as the fingers are always in my son's mouth. I read to mix equal parts flour and water then add food coloring. This made a great "paint". "
