Easy Finger Paint

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by littlemafia

All the recipes I found here were calling for either cornstarch(I was out) or glycerin (didn't have any). I found this on http://www.creativekidsathome.com/activities/activity_42.html. DD is working on it right now.With 1/3 cup of water and 1/3 cup of flour we got enough to make three colors, enough for one time painting. Update:it works! The painting I made was nice, no cracks. The one DD did,crinkled up the paper. She poured the paint on the paper and worked from there. I 'm happy with the result.

I found this to work ok, it looked a bit grainy and was hard to make distinct pictures with, but would be fine for little kids who just want to mess around a bit.
