I decided to make some finger paint for an upcoming playdate I am hosting. I could very well use store bought paint, but I like the idea of making simple things like this at home. I used a recipe I saw on a website, however it turned out to thick, so I modified it a bit, so here is my version:
What you need:
- 1/2 cup corn startch
- 2 table spoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups room temperature water
- Food coloring
Mix all the ingredients in a pot and stir them non-stop on low/medium heat until the mix becomes smoth. If it's too thick to your liking, add warm water and stir some more.
Divide the mix into small containers and add a drop of food coloring, mix. Ta-dah!
