I had a revolution of sorts the other day. I was browsing education.com (a great go-to source) and discovered a recipe for homemade finger paint. Who knew? Well, I’m sure some of you did… but, I didn’t! It was cheap, easy and I had all the ingredients already in my pantry.

I won’t reprint the recipe here, but you can go to this link to find it. All you need is cornstarch, water, salt, sugar and food coloring or powdered tempura. Lizzie was very fascinated by the mixing of the colors. I think next time we’ll experiment more with color mixing instead of just using primary colors.
I love homemade art supplies! There’s no worrying about what may be in there and it’s a lot cheaper than buying them in the store. I’ll definitely be exploring more recipes and I’ll share the good ones with you. Oh, and we’ll be finger painting a lot more as well!If you enjoy this post, please consider following me on Facebook. Thanks for stopping by!
