Homemade Fingerpaint


The recipe we used is one I’ve seen a few times. No wonder it’s a favorite, it was super easy to make and has a great consistency for fingerpainting!

Here’s the recipe:

3 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup corn starch
2 cups cold water
food coloring

Add all ingredients except food coloring in pan and warm on low heat, stirring constantly until it thickens. Take off the heat and allow to cool. Put into containers, and add food coloring to each container.

You will notice in the picture my fingerpaint isn’t perfectly blended with color – it’s just that Curly was ‘helping’ me and I was a little frantic to get the lids on before it all ended up on the floor! It’s easily remedied with just a little more stirring.
