Finger Paint

It has already been a busy morning! While cleaning out my extensive pile of recipes to try, I found one for homemade finger paint. I tried it this morning and Lillian helped by adding the food color. It was so easy! I think this would be great to make to use for Bible class, a kid's party, or anywhere you need a large amount of paint for cheap.

Here is the 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 4 or more containers, and add food coloring as desired. (I used small ziplock containers)

This sounds really fun. Is it washable? Grace gets everything EVERYWHERE. Claire rarely makes a mess and if she does she cleans it up. I'm pretty sure its just their personalities, but I always check to see if things are going to wash out.
