Any mom of a toddler knows those little munchkins will stick anything and everything in their mouths. With that in mind I have been on a mission to find kid friendly finger paint. I have found a few non toxic brands in the store, but none that I felt would be ok for Lil T to eat. After a fun search on Pinterest I found a couple of recipes from The Berry and I Can Teach My Child.
I ended up doing the one with corn starch. My paint got a little thick and turned a bit gel like. I think adding a little water will fix that problem though. It still worked just fine and we had fun painting with it.
To make this paint you will need the following ingredients:
1/2 C Corn Starch
3 TBS Sugar
1/2 TSP of salt
2 C water
Combine dry ingredients in a small sauce pan. Beware you might make a mess :)
Add the food coloring to the paint in the containers. I had the gel food coloring and added between a nickle to quarter size glob to each container.
