Super Easy Homemade Finger Paints


Finger paints disappear so fast! I had to find and easy-piesy-lemon-squeezy way of having them and not blowing my budget. Homemade really is the go! We have a great recipe that can be put together in a snap with household products we already have!

How To Make Super Easy Finger Paints for Kids:
Materials Needed: 2 cups white flour, 2 cups cold water, food coloring or Bio Color
The Process: Put water into a large bowl. Slowly add the flour, while the children are stirring. Once it's all mixed together, divide into smaller bowls and add food coloring or Bio Color. Kids just love to be a part of making and creating new things. Art and creativity, science and measuring; we can never underestimate what kids are actually learning with well planned activities!

We aren't afraid of kids getting a bit messy. How about you?
