Homemade Finger Paints

Posted on Updated on

Buying finger paints at the store can get really expensive. They run out as soon as you buy them and worse of all you would not want your kiddos sticking their fingers in their mouths.

By no means is this recipe being promoted as edible, but you will not have to worry about your kids eating strange chemicals. So grab a piece of paper and a couple of little hands and have fun.

Hand Paint

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 cups water
  • food coloring

Instructions

  1. Combine the ingredients, minus the food coloring, in a small saucepan and warm until the mixture thickens.
  2. Let it completely cool. If the paint comes out too thick thin it out with a little bit of water, until you get your desired consistency.
  3. Pour the mixture into airtight small containers (empty glass baby food jars are great for this).
  4. Add a few drops of  food coloring to each container until you get your desired color.
