Homemade finger paint

We had a great fun time preparing some finger paint at home. Little Liya was so excited to be the chief chef..:)

Our recipe: 

3 cups water
1 cup cornstarch
food coloring - your choice of colors


In a saucepan, bring water to a boil.  Dissolve cornstarch in a separate bowl with water.  Remove boiling water from heat and add cornstarch mixture.  Return to stove, stirring constantly.  Boil until the mixture is clear and thick (about 1-2 minutes).  Remove from stove.

As the mixture is cooling, divide into separate bowls and add food coloring. We used four colors - green, yellow, blue and red. Again we mixed 2-3 colors together and made cutsom colors as well. Indeed it was so much fun. Liya loved cooking finger paints...
