Make Your Own Finger Paint

By 7:08 PM , ,


What kid doesn’t like to finger paint? It’s super easy to make your own with ingredients that are probably already in your house. The best part is all the ingredients are all-natural so it is OK if your kid/nephew/niece/small friend tries to eat their creation.

You will need
1/2 cup cornstarch
3 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups cold water
food coloring

What to do
In a medium pan, mix all the ingredients together to make the finger paint. Cook over low heat 10 to 15 minutes. Keep stirring the finger paint mixture until it is smooth and thick. After the finger paint has thickened take the pan off the stove and let the mixture cool. After cooling, divide the finger paint into storage containers depending on how many colors you would like. Add a few drops of food coloring to each container. Stir the coloring into the paint to determine the color. You're ready to paint!
