Pudding Painting: a delicious toddler sensory activity.
There is nothing classier than inviting your friends over to pudding paint on a shower curtain. We really knows how to host an event around here. Martha Stewart better take notes…
This was one of those uber-sophisticated parties that you just really hope to be invited to. Two of my toddler’s besties came for this party and it did not disappoint.
Pudding painting was a snap to set up. A ridiculous amount of much messy fun was had by all the toddlers involved. And so much pudding was eaten by the moms. Forget the toddlers. We thought this was delicious.
Here’s how Pudding Painting went down.

Let’s talk about this shower curtain for a second. I bought an extra shower curtain liner to use as a make shift toddler tarp. It was my best Mom move to date. The shower curtain liner is the perfect size for toddler bodies and can go right in the washing machine or be hosed off outside.
I made the vanilla pudding per the directions on the box and let it set up to perfection. After it set, I spooned it into some smaller bowls and added the food coloring. Don’t worry – the food coloring doesn’t change the taste and it was still just as delicious dyed red. I ate plenty before and after I dyed it so I can say this with total confidence.
I globbed the pudding out onto the shower curtain, added some brushes and kitchen utensils – oh and three naked toddlers.
The kids had so much fun experimenting with the pudding, smooshing it, painting it, and of course, eating it. Duh.
They made delicious art, fabulous memories, and then went right into the bath tub to get their stinky bodies cleaned off. The shower curtain was a quick hose off on the patio and all was clean and perfect in under 5 minutes. Love when it’s a fast up and fast take down project – especially when it involves a mess like this.
