Homemade Finger Painting

Kids love painting, but many store bought paint can be a bit toxic! We found this recipe of homemade finger paint...easy to make and clean, and cheap.

1 cup cornstarch
3 cups water
food coloring

In a saucepan, boil the 3 cups of water. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl dissolve your cornstarch in just a bit of water. Remove your saucepan from the heat, and dissolve the cornstarch mixture in the hot water. Bring the mixture back to a boil and cook it until it’s thick and clear. Divide your fingerpaint into separate small containers and let it cool before mixing in your food coloring.

You can buy regular food dyes, or use eco-friendly options to color your finger paint. Check out these natural, gluten-free, plant-based food colorings from Seelect!
