DIY Homemade Paint

Did you know that you can make homemade paint with items you have in your kitchen? Best of all it’s nontoxic, edible, and completely kid-friendly! Our simple DIY homemade paint is the perfect craft to do with the little ones—and when you use Davidson’s™ eggs, it’s completely worry free. :)

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Egg yolks (one for each color)
  • Multiple bottles of food coloring
  • Muffin tin or multiple small bowls
  • Paint brushes


Make your own DIY paint

  1. Separate egg yolk from egg white. Place yolk into cup of muffin tin.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of food coloring to egg yolk. Stir to combine.
  3. Repeat with as many colors as you like.

That’s it! Now you and your kitchen helper are ready to paint. Try mixing colors for a wider color palette.
