Safe, Fun Fingerpaint Recipe

Category Crafts

My 17 month old daughter Ellie is testing out my fingerpaint recipe in this photo. As you can see, it is completely safe.

Mix 3 Tbs flour, 1 Tbs cornstarch, and just enough water to make a thin paste. Add a few drops of food coloring. Note: paint dries lighter, so make the colors bold.


Tape a piece of freezer paper to the table (wax side down) and have your child wear a smock or a shirt that is safe to wash with a little bleach. Enjoy!
