Ingredients

  • 1
    cup cornstarch
  • 1/2
    cup cold water
  • 2
    tablespoons dish soap
  • 1/2
    cup hot water
  • Red, yellow, green and blue food color

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, stir together cornstarch, cold water and dish soap. Add hot water; beat with electric mixer on medium speed until mixture is creamy.
  • 2
    Divide mixture among 4 small plastic containers. Drop several drops of red food color into 1 container; stir until well mixed. Repeat with remaining food colors and containers. Store covered at room temperature. Use for finger painting on paper or canvas.

  • Color it cute! Use neon food color for extra-vibrant finger paints.
  • Paintbrushes optional! Though this paint is safe for little fingers, feel free to invite your kiddos to use paintbrushes for added technique.
