Sadly, I couldn't find any non toxic paint [yeay for being overseas] but I realized I could probably make it myself. Yup here is the recipe and how to for making fingerpaint! The teacher in me also thought, what a great lesson activity this would be to teach kids about colors.... like our favorite one yellow.
So how do you make it? Here it is step by step using all the things you already have in the pantry.
2 cups of cold water
3 tbsp of sugar
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 cup of corn starch
Mix the water, sugar, salt, and cornstarch together until everything is dissolved.
Put it in a pan and cook it over low to medium heat for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Stir it frequently and it will start to thicken [this reminds me of cooking gravy].
Soon the milky liquid will be a thick white substance.
Divide them in different containers.
Let it cool. This is where my teacher light bulb came on. If you have a toddler let them join in the making of the colors. I can't wait until Cindy is old enough to do this with me.
