A Recipe for Finger Paint


3 Cups cold water
1 Cup cornstarch
food colouring
1 TBS glycerin (optional...will make paint shinier)


1. Dissolve cornstarch in some of the cold water.
2. Bring remainder of water to a boil in a saucepan.
3. Add dissolved cornstarch to boiling water, a little at a time, stirring constantly.
4. Continue over medium heat till thickened. (just a minute or so)
Remove from heat, divide into separate containers for different colors.

This is great winter fun for those days too cold to venture outdoors. Butcher paper, paperbags, or any other scratch paper is a great surface to play with.
