Cool & Creative Ways to Use Your Muffin Tins!

Toddler Pudding Finger Paint

on June 21, 2012

This one is pretty neat folks! When I first saw it I was like, “What is that?” Aha pudding, ooooh, that looks like FUN!!! πŸ˜€ So of course I had to share… Another way to learn through play πŸ™‚

The photos & directions come to us from Homespun With Love.

Here’s what you will need:

Vanilla instant pudding

Food coloring

Muffin tin

Finger paint paper (the smooth glossy type)

An old sheet or something to cover the floor

Optional: Paint brushes and craft sticks, or other interesting items


1. Mix up your pudding according to the package directions. Depending on the age of your children, you can have them help by measuring and pouring and stirring the pudding in the bowl.

2. Fill your muffin tin cavities 1/2 full with pudding.

3. Add food coloring and mix well. We found that some of the colors did not stay true due to the fact the pudding is a little yellow. It just made the colors more interesting.

Note: You can either use the pudding once it is mixed with the food coloring, or cover and store in refrigerator until ready to use.

This is an AWESOME sensory experience! Not to mention it introduces color mixing, fine & gross motor skills, jump starts the imagination and much much more.

Added bonuses are the quality time you will be spending together and it’s okay if they eat it, lol! πŸ˜‰

I hope you’ve enjoyed this and will pay a visit to Homespun With Love, she has tons of great craft & decorating ideas as well as budget friendly recipes and more!

Keep on spreadin the muffin tin love!! ❀
