Painting for fun

Finger Paints

I love Internet! I came across this wonderful sight The Idea Room

Finger Paints
1/2 c cornstarch
3 Tbsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
2 c cold water
food coloring

must have:
storage containers
How To Make:
In medium pan, mix all ingredients together to make the finger paint. Cook over low heat for 10-15 minutes. (Tip: I would cook it about 5 minutes less). Keep stirring the finger paint mixture until it is smooth and thick. After the finger paint has thickened take the pan off the stove and let the mixture cool. After cooling, divide into storage containers depending on how many colors you would like. Add a few drops of food coloring to the containers. Stir the coloring into the paint top determine the shade of color. You're ready to paint! Cover tightly when storing.
