{5 Minute} Finger Paints

Pin It
We whipped up some easy homemade finger paints today!


Recipe
2 cups Water
1/2 cup Corn Starch
Food Coloring



Combine the water and cornstarch in a pan, and whisk it until the corn starch is smooth



Turn the heat up to high, and bring the water/cornstarch mixture to a boil.  Whisk continuously.



The mixture will thicken up FAST!





Once thickened, remove the pan from the heat and divide the mixture between bowls.  Start adding some food coloring!



Mix it up....



Enlist a little help if you like :)


And done!

  9. This is a great idea. Have you had any problems with the paint staining clothing or fingers though? I thought food coloring could be a bit troublesome but perhaps it isn't enough to cause a problem. I'd love to hear your feedback! Thanks for sharing.
