Elmer's (the glue company) has a lot of gluten-free products, but their finger paints are definitely not gluten-free. I recently contacted them, so I can tell you for sure, their finger paints are not gluten-free. I believe these finger paints are sold under a brand name called, "Ross", but they're actually manufactured by Elmer's.
Does anyone know if finger paints are safe. And if not are there any that are?
On the flip side, because of my daughter's gluten-free status, my day care used to do something neat for finger paints. They mixed gluten-free acrylic paint with gluten-free foam shaving cream, to create a foamy finger paint. I can't remember which acrylic paint they were using, but it might have been Crayola. You can probably find out more on the Crayola web site. They were using Colgate shaving cream, which I believe is still gluten-free (but it wouldn't hurt to look into that too).
As with Play Dough, finger paints get under the fingernails, so even though the medical community tells us it's fine to have gluten touch the skin, with little kids, keeping fingers gluten-free is so important!
