Finger Paints Revisited

The yogurt paints were a big success with Busy Bee but considering that it was the first thing that I let her go wild with, I guess it came as no surprise. I wanted to give her something more colorful to play with so I looked for other safe fingerpaint ideas and came across the cornstarch paints. They are a lot more vibrant in color compared to the yogurt paints. It is best to use the paints as soon as it is made or else they can harden into jello like consistency. However you could add a little hot water to loosen it up.

You need :
1/2 Cup Cornflour
3 Tbsp Sugar
1/2 Tspn Salt
2 Cups Water

Let's Begin:
-Mix all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat till you see the mixture thicken into a vaseline like consistency.
-Once cooled, pour into containers and add desired food colors and mix.
