Ellianna and I made these the other day and I'm just now getting around to posting it. I was going to make it again so that you could see the CORRECT form of how it is supposed to look but thought that maybe you could learn from MY MISTAKE...by the way Ellianna was none the wiser! She still had fun! Later this week we will do bath paints.
As I always want to give credit where credit is due I found this on the Idea Room. Again, click on my blog button for the site if you would like....or you could always follow my directions:)
1/2 c cornstarch
3 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 c cold water
Cook on low for 10 min.....until it thickens....ok that was my problem I didn't WAIT for it to get thick enough but she still was able to use the paint and I personally liked it better than the thick one I had last time.
The colors were brighter....but ALAS....it was supposed to be MUCH thicker....she still had fun as you will see in the pics below!
ok people.....don't freak out that I let my daughter cook on a hot stove...I hadn't turned it on yet...
I had containers to SAVE them in BUT the mixture was to thin to save....soo...learn from me friends!
Have fun and since in my neck of the woods its TOTALLY snowing we will be having A LOT of time to perfect our paint and bath paints and playdoh and organizing:)
