finger paint.

Martha says, "Homemade finger paints are nontoxic, washable, and always available."

Recipe: Stir 4 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 cup cornstarch together; add 2 cups of cold water, and heat over medium heat until the mixture is thick (the mixture will further thicken as it cools). Divide into four or more containers, and add food coloring as desired.

[Fat Brain Toys sells a Melissa and Doug standing easel (children's) for $45.95.]

I can't wait until Cole is old enough...


  1. Ooh, I like the recipe. That's always good to keep on file. I'm sure Cole would love doing it right now!

  2. great recipe - sometimes using pudding is good too - they always end up eating it

  3. I will be trying this one out. What fun. Oh, and the kids can play too!
