Homemade Paints

We made these paints last week and they were so cool! I didn't get pictures, but at least I can pass on the recipe. My grandmother passed away several years ago and we finally got to go through her things. She had a lot of cookbooks and one of them is a cookbook that was complied by parents of preschool children.

Homemade Finger Paints

3 T Sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch
2 cups cold water
food coloring
pinch of detergent

Mix the sugar and cornstarch together and then add the water. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture becomes thick. Divide the mixture into several portions and add a different food coloring to each, plus a pinch of detergent to facilitate cleanup. I used an icetray for the different colors.
