All you need is:


Corn Starch



Combine 2 cups of water and 1/2 cup of water in a medium sauce pan; along with 3 tbs of sugar and 1/2 tsp of salt

Put on a low heat and whisk all the ingredients until it starts to thicken. Add 1 more cup of water slowly into the mixture as you continue to whisk.

*** Best part is that you don’t have to have a separate pot for making these finger paints because they are all edible ingredients and the pot cleans with no problem at all***

THAT IS WHAT I CALL A MOMMY BONUS … less cleanup, inexpensive and lots of fun!
