Finger Paints Recipe
A simple recipe to create finger paints at home. Don't buy the store bought brand. Make this with your child's help.
3 tablespoons sugar
½ cup cornstarch
2 cps cold water
Mix the sugar and cornstarch together in a sauce pan.
Add water and stir.
Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until it is well blended, about 5 minutes.
Remove from the stove, cool and pour into four small plastic or paper cups.
Be careful with food coloring as it will stain, but add a little to each cup and then add a drop of detergent to each cup as well. Stir to blend with wooden sticks.
Voila! Finger paints.
