Homemade Finger Painting Recipe

Today I thought we would try finger painting. I got a homemade recipe off the internet at . Here is the recipe:

1/2 cup cornstarch
3 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups cold water
food coloring

You mix all the ingredients above and heat it in a pan on the stove until it thickens.

It was very gooey, not like the finger paint you might buy in the store. Still, it was so easy and inexpensive that I was pretty happy with the result. I gave them each a square of Bristle Board with some paint. Using my own piece of Bristle Board, I showed them how to spread the paint around with their fingers. Aidas was all over it, but the other two....well, the picture below speaks a thousand words.
M. (in the highchair) has perfected the 'teenager with an attitude' look. She is clearly not impressed. And Noah is bored out of his skull. Neither of them wanted to touch their paper. At least Aidas is enjoying himself! Maybe we'll try it again in a couple of weeks.

All of them were happy when we moved on to snack. Again, a picture speaks a thousand words!
