Cornstarch Finger Paint
Finger painting is a tradition in all early childhood programs, and is often an activity that many children have never done before entering school. Here is a successful recipe for cornstarch finger paint:
You Will Need: Saucepan; mixing spoon; 8 parts water; 1 part cornstarch; food coloring.
What You Do:
*Bring the water to a boil and dissolve the cornstarch in the water while stirring.
*Bring the water to a boil again.

*(Cooled paint will be slightly thicker; good for brush painting as well as finger painting.)
