DIY Finger Paints (non-toxic)!

DIY Finger Paints.

Finger paint is so easy (and cheap) to make, I will no longer buy it! Plus this is non-toxic!

Simple ingredients. Cornstarch, salt, sugar, water, food coloring.

Mix 3 tablespoons of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 cup of cornstarch and 2 cups of water in a saucepan. Stir to boil, remove from heat and continue stirring until it's thick like pudding. Let it cool.
Seperate into different bowls and add food coloring. That's it.

This was a good color mixing project too (yellow/blue=green).

Fun, fast and cleanup is easy.

For storage, you can use any container as long as it seals tight. These should last a long time!
We just reused some jars we had on hand.

Happy painting!
