  1. PUDDING PAINT: Prepare the pudding according to package directions. Put dabs on oilcloth or vinyl tablecloth or placemat.
  2. SHAVING CREAM PAINT: Squirt some aerosol shaving cream on colored paper (dark blue or black look cool) OR add a few drops of food coloring and smear around on white paper.
  3. WHIPPED CREAM PAINT: Beat cream until soft peaks form, add the vanilla and continue beating until firmer peaks form, then add sugar and incorporate. Add a few dabs to paper or a paper plate. Food coloring may be added to make it interesting, too!
  4. SUDSY FINGER PAINTS: Finger Paint (Non-edible): 1°C soap flakes (Ivory), dry tempera paint OR food coloring, 1/2°C water. Whip soap flakes, paint, and water using an electric mixer--until smooth and thick. Stir in food coloring if using. Put a blob on glossy-slick paper.
