Homemade Finger paints!

Yes. This is fantastic! Quick and easy. While the baby was napping I whipped up some of these easy to make finger paints. This is just cornstarch and sugar and water!  Imagine that, no chemicals and if some happens to get in baby's mouth, no big deal!
So here is what you will need:
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch
2 cups cold water
muffin tin
food coloring

Combine sugar and cornstarch in a pot, over low to med heat stir in the water, cook until thick.  This took about 7-10 minutes, don't cook too long, you don't want it to be too thick.
Separate into the muffin tin, add food coloring of your choice!

I know that is so easy.  I can't wait until he wakes up so that we can play!  I have the painting area all set up with newspaper, paper for painting, and the most important water bowl for quick clean up!  More pictures later.
