Homemade Finger Paints

Homemade Finger Paints

Total Time Needed:
1 Hour

Inexpensive easy to make with items likely to have from home!

  • 1 cup of cold water
  • 1/4 cup of cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon of light corn syrup
  • Washable, nontoxic tempera paint
  • Bowls
  • Finger-paint paper or freezer paper
  • Masking tape
  1. Finger Painting Before you begin: Spread out a plastic tablecloth, keep wipes handy, and wear a smock or old clothes.

  2. In a small saucepan, stir together the cold water and cornstarch. Whisk the mixture over low heat for about 5 minutes until it thickens and clears -- this will happen all at once. Whisk in 1 tablespoon of light corn syrup, then divide the mixture into bowls and stir a squirt of tempera paint into each one.

  3. After the paint has cooled, scoop blobs of it onto finger-paint paper (taped to your table) or let your kids scoop it out themselves -- whichever they prefer -- and commence smearing. Leftover paint can be stored in sealed containers in the fridge for a day or two.
