Unlike most adults, kids love to get their hands dirty. The messier, the stickier, the slimier, the better! You don't need to shell out big bucks to keep them in fingerpaint. With this recipe, you can stew up their favorite colors, right in your own kitchen.
Don't let the mess hold you back. Not only is this stuff easy on the wallet, it's washable, too. Slime it up, hose them down, and you're ready for a spring barbeque.
Homemade Fingerpaint Recipe
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup cold water
- Food coloring
Put the cornstarch, salt, sugar, and water into a pot. Cook over low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly. The mixture will start thin, but eventually get thick. When it does, take the pot off of the stove and let the mixture cool off. Once it's cool, divide it into small containers (small jars or leftover yogurt containers work well) and add a few drops of food coloring to each. Voila! It's time to paint.
