When I nannied for the twins I got paint from elc. I can't remember what age it was from but as long as its supervised I don't see the problem.

I've used ELC paint with William, and Tesco.  I supervised him at all times and washed his hands straight away.

I also recommend elc paints.

I would advise against Crayola paints - my previous charge had green hands for 3 days after we'd used them  Shocked

DITTO!

I was just about to post the same...

My family have crayola but since they once stained my charges hands really badly (and we werent even doing hand painting, just where he was touching his junk modelling)..I now take my own ELC paints and they are just fine

I rang Crayola, as it said washable on the label.. I begged to differ, as I had to scrub my own hands with kitchen cleaner, told them Iwas not prepared to do the same for a childs hand!

Just read the comments under the blog post and it says ... I think out of the fridge no more than a couple of days. In the fridge maybe a week at a guess? I think ours was best the day we made it, and it was best at being a sensory play material rather than long-lasting paint. Lots of fun though!

I haven't made it but have made 'Cornflour Gloop' which is just cornflour and water which younger kids love, and it washes off skin and clothes so easily. By the time kids have finished with it there is nothing left to keep. It's all over them instead.

I mix yogurt with different food colourings for tiddlers - it dries well and doesn't mould.

With Kaiya we made them, using natrual plain yogurt and food colouring, we didnt too often as she hated the feel of being dirty, but they do make fab paints and colours, and best of all its all safe if they get licked. x

I usually make my own brown paint. Just mix a little bit of any colours you got... Think I do, red, blue, yellow... An if too dark an more yellow, too light add more blue.. Just keep adding little at time an mixing until you get the right shade of brown!!
Good luck, hope that helps!! :-)
