|Hands and feet fun with homemade finger paint|
This is how I made it:
about 3/4 cup cornstarch
3 tablespoons sugar
| Cupcake with homemade finger paint|
food coloring for colors.
I mixed the cornstarch and sugar together in a pot. Then I added the water and heated it on a low temperature. Heat until it is hot, I didn't let it boil. Then divide into bowls (we used 5 colors so we had 5 bowls), add desired food coloring and then let it cool. I noticed that this works better if you take some of the water off of the top once it is cooled in the bowls and the water rises to the top. But keep a little water to keep it from getting way too thick. Cornstarch will cake up on the bottom if you let it.
That was it, we were ready to have a ball and get creative! My youngest had fun with her hands and feet, my older daughter had fun designing cupcakes. This does seem to make a mess, but cornstarch comes right off with water. Clean-up is not as bad as it looks like it will be :)
