Easie Peasie Homemade Kids Finger Paints

These finger paints are great for a tight classroom budget, but what about a great classroom gift idea for the kids?
Be sure to add at least a tablespoon of dish washing soap to the mixture with the water!
This gift idea is great for:

  • Kids Birthdays
  • End of Summer Gifts
  • Special Holiday Gifts
  • Party Favors

Just finished making these. A quick question... are they suppose to be a little watery?

Hi kristilynnnnn,
When you mix them, they are watery. It's cooking them that burns off a lot of the water. If you still have that problem you may want to cook them again or try adding a bit more flour.

For younger kids I always thicken them-less drips, you know :)
Hope that helps! Cheers!
