Homemade Finger Paint

Ingredients

  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼  tsp salt (optional)
  • food colouring
  • Cold water for thinning

Instructions

  1. Combine the flour, water and salt (will keep the paint from spoiling) in a saucepan over a medium heat.
  2. The mixture will be lumpy but it will then thicken into a paste.
  3. Once it has become a smooth, thick paste, remove from the heat.
  4. Whisk in cold water a few tablespoons at a time until it reaches the desired consistency. Usually, ½ cup of cold water will be enough.
  5. Divide the mixture into bowls.
  6. Add some food colouring to the bowls to create the paint colours you like.
  7. Allow to cool completely before painting.
  8. Store in a covered container in the fridge.
