We love to make our art and sensory activities edible for mixed age groups (like with our Edible Candy Slime), and for Valentine’s Day an Edible Conversation Heart Paint seemed like the perfect themed activity for our group!
This homemade candy paint recipe is a great way to use up leftover conversation hearts and results in a glossy and yummy-scented paint. It’s also safe for little tasters or finger painters to play with.
Ingredients to Make Conversation Heart Paint
- 20 conversation hearts in each colour of paint you want to make
- 2-3 tbsp of water for each colour
- plastic bag for each colour
- kitchen mallet
- mason jar for each colour
- paper or cardstock
- kitchen towel or a rag
