Painting with Yogurt

I saw this on several blogs and thought I'd give it a try. We used a bit of plain unflavored yogurt and food coloring and went to work on our paper plates. It was really fun! The boys love plain yogurt, so they did a lot of licking. I intended to have them work on forming some letters with their 'finger paint' to work on how a letter is made. After a couple frustrating encounters with my firstborn, I just let them have fun.

Of course, the little scientist he is, John Paul mixed the colors together gleefully and told me all about what new colors were appearing. Easy to make, easy clean up, and good pre-writing practice (in theory).


  1. This is such a classic John Paul face! I love how he is so into science and such, yet he is keeping his goofyness! What a litte love. The Lord shines on you and affirms your call to homeschooling every time he get this excited about something he is working on!

  2. me again, sorry.
    I think we need a Maria blog post. So, put on your creative hat!

  3. You are so brave to do projects such as this. I would be afraid of the mess it would make! Way to go!

  4. Sounds like you guys had a great time but, I wondering if I have the patience for this one;)
