A Sweet Masterpiece: Painting with Icing :)

This art activity is one of my favorites. It promotes fine motor development and reinforces color recognition.

Here is what you will need:

Food Coloring or Tempura Paint
Craft Sticks (Optional)
Card Stock or Heavy Construction Paper

We used tempura paint and mixed it with the icing, to make Valentine’s Day colors.(The children may want to help mix the colors, which is great for science development.)

Set out the materials, discuss, and allow children to explore them.

“Pink!!!” (He identified a color…best thing to happen all day!)


  1. That is a masterpiece! Tell him other momma LOVES it and HIM! And his MOMMA!

  2. Really great post, thanks so much for sharing this with us!
