Awesome Homemade Gel Paint!!!

I have been trying to do tons of fun arts and crafts with the kids lately, and our latest fun thing to do was when we made Gel paint, this stuff is absolutely amazing and super simple and inexpensive to make so glad I saw this idea!

What you need:

  • Styling/hair gel
  • Food coloring
  • Glitter or sequins

First get a small amount of hair gel



Then, add food coloring, for this amount of gel (about 2- 2 1/2 Tbsp.) 1 to 2 drops is plenty.


After that, add your glitter or sequins, or any other fun things you can think to add


Finally, time to mix it all up, we used popsicle sticks to mix it and they worked really well


And here is your final product, a very fun, neat looking, inexpensive, homemade paint and the best part of all is getting to see the kids having fun and watching them use their imaginations thinking of fun things to paint!
