Homemade Finger Paint
Last updated July 31, 2006
Homemade finger paint is affordable, easy to make, non-toxic, and always available. Children enjoy not only painting but making this simple finger paint. Experiment with cause and effect as you mix colors.
In a medium saucepan, mix all ingredients. Cook over low heat for 10-15 minutes. Keep stirring paint mixture until it is smooth and thick. After the finger paint has thickened remove from heat and let the mixture cool to room temperature.
Once cool, divide the paint into a number of storage containers depending on how many colors you would like. Add a few drops of food coloring to each portion of paint. Stir each color, adding more coloring if necessary. Cover tightly and store any remaining paint at room temperature.
