Today I made home made finger paint. It’s not like your smooth finger paint you can by in the store but it does the job. My daughter had lots and lots of fun. I think she made about 8 pictures. With her it’s a real mess but she sure had a blast messing around.
Let me first share the recipe then share the fun she had.
Easy Homemade Finger Paint
- 2 cups Flour
- 2 cups Cold Water
- Food coloring
Mix the flour and water in a bowl until mixed completely. What I did was break the mixture into 4 containers. Then I added food coloring to each bowl. That simple. Each bowl has a cover to keep it until the next use.
Ok now back to Brittany. She had so much fun dipping her fingers into the paint. She would say painting. Try to say the colors. Each time she dipped her precious little finger into the bowl I would tell her the color and she would repeat it. At times she would dip her whole hand into the paint and we would have to stop and wash them and start all over again on another paper. LOL
Now onto one of the finished products of her beautiful finger painting I ran out of counter space to put her wet pictures until they dry.
