Finger paint for 1 year old

My daughter loves using paint and chunky felt pens, with adult help, when she goes to nursery.
However when I look for finger paint or chunky pens for home use, they're plastered with "not for under 3s" warnings. Of course, just like at nursery I plan to sit right next to her and closely watch, with lids out of reach etc.

Where can you buy or make 1 yr old's paint - or shall I just buy finger paint and chunky pens/crayons anyway?

Just buy the normal stuff and supervise so she doesn't eat it.

Cool. Was hoping that was the answer! grin

Galt finger paints say adult supervision for under 3s, doesn't say not for under 3s smile

Thanks - will look for Galt. I just looked at supermarket ones, I think their warnings are quite generic.

Monkey might try that, though I'm quite lazy so might rely on Galt!
