Homemade Finger Paint for Kids

January 19, 2016

Finger painting is loved by all the kids.  They love the colors plus the way they those colors just cover up those white dull spots.  They find that quite amazing.

So why not let’s make our own finger paint.  Ready…

I have two recipes – one that does not require heating and can be made by or with the kids.  The other one requires heating so definitely needs to be done by an adult.

Let’s first start with the one that kids can help with.For this recipe you will need:

  • 2 cups of cold water
  • 2 cups of white flour (I used all –purpose)
  • Food coloring

Now place the water into a large bold and slowly add the flour.  Have you child help with stirring.  Once the water and flour are mixed well, divide the mixture into smaller bowls (division will depend on how many colors you have).  Now add the food coloring to the mixture.  And that’s it!  Isn’t that easy!

Now the one that requires heating and for this recipe you will need:

  • 2 cups of cold water
  • ½ cup of cornstarch
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar
  • Food coloring

Mix the sugar and cornstarch together and add water.  Heat mixture over medium heat until it thickens.  Divide the mixture and add the food coloring.
