Today we decided to give fingerpainting a go. We haven't done any art/craft projects yet, so I was pretty excited to see how he'd do. Since he's still at the stage where everything goes in his mouth, I made an "edible" version just in case.
This version was super easy to make and it made quite a bit.
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 1/3 C. flour
- 2 C. water
Mix all the ingredients in a saucepan. Turn on the heat and whisk until the mixture thickens. Takes a few minutes or so. Dispense the mixture into separate containers and add food coloring. Mix thoroughly and wait until it cools before giving to the lil ones.
I put some seran wrap over the cups and I think they should keep pretty well. Although it only entertained him for less than 5 minutes and required a bath in the middle of the afternoon, it was fun and something different for once. :)
