Cornstarch Finger Paint from the Crafting Cousins

Our last guest post in the series comes from our new blog friends, the Crafting Cousins.  They cook, they sew, they paint...go check out their blog!
Cornstarch Finger Paint
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • medium saucepan
  • 2 cups cold water
  • muffin tin or small cups
  • spoon
  • food coloring
  • soap flakes or liquid dish soap
Mix sugar and cornstarch in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add cold water and continue stirring until the mixture is thick. Remove from heat. Divide mixture into muffin tins or small cups. Add food coloring and a pinch of flakes or a drop of soap into each portion. Use a different color for each portion. Stir and let cool. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
I used gel food coloring and let my little dude blend the colors with a toothpick.
We ended up with 10 different colors.

Thanks for the great idea!
