Bathtub Paint: the recipe: 1 tbsp cornstarch, 4-6 pumps baby shampoo (about 1/8 c.), 2-3 drops food coloring, 1-2 tsp water by janis
Bathtub paint! Tried it out this evening and I will definitely be doing this again. I used flour instead of cornstarch, it worked perfectly fine. Don't add too much water or else it becomes much too soupy. Once we were done I turned on the faucet. The water was blue and full of bubbles (I used J for the shampoo). The boy enjoyed that part as well. Easy cleanup too!
Cook your own homemade FINGER paint! 1/2 cup cornstarch ■ 3 Tbsp. sugar ■ 1/2 tsp. salt ■ 2 cups cold water ■ food coloring
Sidewalk chalk paint is so much cooler than regular old sidewalk chalk! And it’s crazy easy to make! It’s simply 1 part cornstarch to 1 part water. I made two muffin tins of paint and used 1-1/2 cups cornstarch and 1-1/2 cups water. Once it was all mixed up, I divided it among the 12 muffin cups, and added two drops of food coloring to each muffin cup
