Default Ready Made Kid Paints?

Are ready made kid paints safe to use on budgie toys. I'm considering colouring in my budgies play gyms but I want to be sure that ready made kids paints are safe for budgies? If not I have food colouring but I'm just curious.

I've moved your thread to the "Do It Yourself" section of the forum.

I would not recommend using paint on your budgie's toys.
You are much better off using food coloring.

Without knowing the exact ingredients and proportions of those ingredients used in the paints, it is impossible to say with any accuracy whether or not those paints might be toxic to your bird.

Very nice! You're doing a good job.

Just keep in mind the food coloring will come off and leech out of the wood when the wood gets wet and when you use vinegar to clean the playgym.

Personally, I like the natural look myself and find much it easier clean.
