"finger painting" day 1

now my backyard is so colorful :)

My kids love to paint. What can be more fun than watching kids being creative and happy in the "pool of laughs"? I decided to make our finger paint by myself. It is not difficult to do, easier to clean than store paint, plus its FREE! :) 
the recipe is:
Mix 2 cups flour and 2 cups water. Add food color. Vou a la

or  recipe #2

  • tablespoons sugar

  • 1/3 cup cornstarch

  • cups cold water

  • 1/4 cup clear liquid dish soap

  • food coloring or food coloring paste

  • 1. Mix together sugar and cornstarch in a small pan, then slowly add cold water.

  • 2. Cook over low heat, stirring until the mixture becomes a smooth; almost clear gel about 5 minutes.

  • 3. When it is cool, stir in clear dishwashing liquid.

  • 4. Scoop equal amounts of the mixture into containers and stir in food coloring or, for even more vibrant colors, use food-coloring paste.
