>Homemade Paint!

>

During one of my homeschooling days we ran out of paint! Alhamdulilah I found a quick, safe, and simple recipe to make homemade paint. It was very simple and the children helped to make it. The colors came out nice and vibrant.

Materials:
cornstarch
water
food coloring2 cups white flour
2 cups cold water
food coloring

Pour water into a large mixing bowl. Start slowly adding flour to the water while stirring. Keep adding the flour and stirring until the ingredients are fully mixed together. Separate portions to empty baby food jars or other containers and add food coloring to each to make different colors.
We put ours in empty honey containers and let the children squeeze paint out on the paper
Enjoy!
