DIY Finger Paint

This is a super easy project, and one the kids can totally get involved in. 

After all, why not make your own homemade finger paints. Never limited the amount of pain your kids use in one art session again.

This is all you need:

3 tbs Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Cornstarch
2 Cups Water
Food Coloring

Mix all the ingredients together. In a small sauce pan heat until the mixture starts to thicken, making sure to stir all along. 

Takes about 2-4 minutes to thicken. 

Take off and let cool. Place in jars or containers you plan to use. 
I found that adding the food coloring to the bottom of each jar then mixing seemed to work the best. 
Also had to end up using skewer sticks to really get the food coloring all mixed in.

For quantity purposes, one batch filled all 3 small Gerber baby food jars with hardly anything left over.
