Kids love to finger paint but most finger paints contain gluten. Here is a great recipe that is easy to make and inexpensive.
Here is how you make them:
1/2 cup cornstarch 3 Tbsp. sugar 1/2 tsp. salt 2 cups cold water food coloring
In a medium pan, mix all the ingredients together to make the finger paint. Cook over low heat 10 minutes. Keep stirring the finger paint mixture until it is smooth and thick. After the finger paint has thickened take the pan off the stove and let the mixture cool.
After cooling, divide the finger paint into storage containers depending on how many colors you would like. Add a few drops of food coloring to each container. Stir the coloring in to the paint to determine the shade of color. You’re ready to finger paint! Cover tightly when storing.
After making this I though, I wonder how it would come out using juiced fruit and vegetables for coloring. I will experiment with replacing the water with juice and I'll tell you what the outcome is.
