Today I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes from our new book, 150+ Screen-Free Activities for Kids. Those of you who already own the book can just flip to page 105. :) For those of you who don't have the book or aren't familiar with it, it's got a whole line of naturally dyed sensory recipes (natural dye playdoughs, rice, paints, watercolors, etc.). It also focuses on allergen-free recipes and this recipe is free of all of the most common allergens, which makes it a perfect first paint for babies and young toddlers. The book also has 72 activities for babies, so if you've got a little one you'll be able to find tons of new ideas for play. When I wrote the book, I wanted to include all of our best recipes. Half of the book is new, but of the half that has recipes from the blog - nearly all of them have been reworked to be better and clearer. This recipe is an example of one that's been reworked - it originally appeared on the blog almost 2 years ago here. But I worked to make the consistency more paint-like and the colors brighter and bolder.
