Snack art- edible pudding paint

you will need:

-1 box vanilla or lemon noncook pudding mix
-ready-made piecrust of sugar cookie dough
-food coloring (blue, red, yellow)
-rolling pin
-cookie sheet
-plastic spoons for mixing

1.) Prepare the pudding, following package directions.
2.) While pudding sets in refrigerator (about 5 minutes), roll out piecrust or cookie dough and form into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool.
3.) Divide the set pudding into several muffin cups.
4.) Mix,one color of food coloring into each cup. Try mixing the primary colors (red, blue, yellow) first. Use 5 to 7 drops for every 2 Tablespoons pudding.
5.) Next, create secondary colors(orange and green work best) by mixing 2 drops blue +7 drops yellow for green. 2 drops red +7 drops yellow for orange.
6.) Paint on your piecrust "canvas" using fingers, a new clean paintbrush, a medicine dropper, or a pastey bag.

Tip: For the younger kids, pudding also works great as fingerpaint on waxed paper.
