Date night In--Body Paint

When my sister and I were little girls we shared a bedroom (until we nearly killed one another and my parents decided they'd rather have two kids than one).  Sometimes at night we'd take turns drawing/tickling on each other's back and guess what was drawn.  This date is a new twist on an old game.

For this date, you'll make homemade edible body paint (in advance) and then take turns painting pictures/words on each other's backs.  When you are done "painting" lick off your artwork and switch.

You can make this a wager and see who gets the most pictures correctly.  You can also write action words (as suggestive as you want) and if your lover gets the word right, you have to do it! (For example, you could write kiss or hug or dance).


  • 1 box instant vanilla pudding mix (you do need it white so you can add color but if you don't care about color then get any flavor you want!)
  • 2 c. cold milk
  • food coloring
  • essential flavors (optional: coconut, almond, cherry, etc,)

  1. Mix pudding with two cups of milk.
  2. Put dollops of pudding into small bowls or glasses.
  3. Add food coloring and flavoring as desired (think red/cherry, brown/coconut, yellow/lemon).
  4. Refridgerate until ready to use.

P.S.  If you don't want to do this as a date you could make the paint with your kids :)


  1. @Amy--it was. Be glad there are no photos :)

  2. All I have to say is sounds yummy!

  3. One clean freak to another: how do you contain the mess?
