Fingerpaint A Picture For Mothers Day

I came across this wonderful easy recipe for fingerpaint in a book our elementary school put together. Man was it fun! I love finger painting and it was even fun for my 15 month old daughter.

We made these fun pictures for our grandmas for Mothers day. I love giving homemade gifts to them just as much as they love receiving them. What beats a fingerpaint?

2 cups water
1/4 cup cornstarch
food coloring

Bring water to a boil. Add small amount of water to cornstarch and blend together to make a paste. Gradually add paste to boiled water, stirring well. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Add food coloring of your choice. Cool; mixture will thicken as it cools. Makes 2 cups.
