Homemade Finger Paint
This homemade finger paint recipe will only take you about 10 minutes to make and it’s a great activity to incorporate into your science lessons for the older kiddos. Believe me, my 6 year old daughter still loves creating and painting with finger paint and it’s such a great sensory play idea for the younger ones as well.
(This is a small batch that will make 1/3 of a cup each of 3 colors, double if needed!)
Non Toxic and made completely with food ingredients.
1 cup cold water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
4 tablespoons sugar
3 Plastic Containers or Bowls
3 jars with covers (baby food jars work great!)
Small whisk or spoon
In a small container or bowl, combine the sugar and cornstarch. Pour into a sauce pan.
Add the water to the sauce pan, mix well.
Bring the water to a boil slowly using medium high heat.
Whisk continuously so that it does not stick to the bottom or burn.
As soon as the mixture starts to bubble and thicken, remove the pan from the heat. Let cool about
Add a drop of food coloring into each plastic container or bowl. Pour the cornstarch mixture equally into
each container. Mix well.
Pour into jars, cover and let cool completely before using.
