Future Picasso

The craft/recipe for the week was to make our own finger paint.  I decided on the Original Finger Paint Recipe found here and inserted pictures of Jackson within the directions:

1/2 cup cornstarch
3 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups cold water
food coloring

In a medium pan, mix all the ingredients together to make the finger paint.

Cook over low heat 10 to 15 minutes. Keep stirring the finger paint mixture until it is smooth and thick. After the finger paint has thickened take the pan off the stove and let the mixture cool.  After cooling, divide the finger paint into storage containers depending on how many colors you would like.

Add a few drops of food coloring to each container. Stir the coloring in to the paint to determine the shade of color.

You're ready to finger paint!

 Cover tightly when storing.
