1 Hour : Play It : Homemade Finger Paint

We've been into a lot of "hands on" things at our house. For a few weeks it was play-do but now it is finger painting. Mason wears an old shirt of mine known as his "paint shirt" and we do it outside. That way it's more enjoyable for me. I think it's so fun to watch him create. I know he just thinks he's incredible but that's ok because so do I.

Homemade finger paints are nontoxic, washable, and I am going to share with you the EASY recipe!

Stir 4 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 cup cornstarch together; add 2 cups of cold water, and heat over medium heat until the mixture is thick (the mixture will further thicken as it cools). Divide into four or more containers, and add food coloring as desired.
