Vegetable Painting for Babies and Toddlers

Baby painting with different kinds of vegetables

Use leftover veggie scraps for a creative painting activity with your little one!

⁣⁠All you need for this fun activity are scraps of your favorite vegetables, paint, and paper. Show your little one the different shapes and designs the veggies make.

⁣⁠If you don’t feel comfortable using regular paint for this activity, we have a great edible paint recipe!⁣⁠


  • 1/2 cup flour⁣⁠
  • 1 cup of water⁣⁠
  • 1/4 tsp salt⁣⁠
  • Food coloring or watercolors⁣⁠
  • Cold water for thinning⁣⁠


  • Combine flour, salt, and 1 cup water in a saucepan.⁣⁠
  • Heat flour/water while whisking. The mixture will be clumpy, then smooth, then thicken into a paste.⁣⁠
  • Once it has become thick and pasty, remove from heat.⁣⁠
  • Whisk in cold water a few tablespoons at a time until desired consistency is reached.⁣⁠
  • Color with food coloring or watercolors.⁣⁠
  • Allow to cool completely, then paint!⁣⁠
