Drink Mix Finger Paint


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 pkg. unsweetened powdered drink mix
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. oil
  • liquid dish soap (optional).


Please be aware that most drink mixes can stain skin and other items it comes in contact with. Wash hands and anything else the powdered drink mix comes in contact with as soon as you are done painting.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, powdered drink mix, and salt. Put it aside. Measure the water in a medium size pot and bring it to a boil. Add the oil to the boiling water. Pour the water and oil mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Add a few drops of liquid dish soap to your paint mixture and blend carefully so you don't make the mixture bubble. This is optional, but it may help with clean up. If the paint is too thick, add more hot water, a little at a time, until it is the desired consistency. Set paint aside and allow to cool before you use it.


Now you can use this for finger painting on freezer paper or butcher paper.
