finger paints

1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup water
6-8 drops of food coloring
Mix the cornstarch and cold water together. Add food coloring and stir. This was an excellent recipe for the babies today.
I love the first picture, you can see Josephine's HUGE front tooth. Its so goofy and adorable. I thought that baking sheets would work better than bowls to hold the finger paint, and I was right. Not much paint made it onto the paper, but they had a terrific tactile time.


  1. Your kids are so cute! I will have to steal this idea in about a year...

  2. Just take a moment to appreciate that this activity was made possible by having access to a yard! I love it!
