Homemade fingerpaint for toddler fun

Filed Under: kids, art, Crafts

fingerpaintingAre your preschoolers tired of all the games they have played over and over 20 million times and you've nothing new to do with them? I know how long the winter can be with toddlers in the house. All I hear all day is "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy"!

Paper and markers keep my littlest one occupied for a short time, as well as her other toys, but she gets bored easily. Craft gives all parents and caregivers some relief by pointing us to try making homemade fingerpaint. All you need is 3 cups water, 1 cup cornflour or cornstarch, and some food coloring.

Make sure the paint isn't too warm when you give it to the kids. We sure don't want to end up with burnt fingers. Making your own fingerpaint is a great winter project that should keep your kids occupied, at least for a few minutes.
