3 tablespoons sugar
½ cup cornstarch
2 cps cold water
food coloring
dish detergent


Mix the sugar and cornstarch together in a sauce pan.

Add water and stir.

Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until it is well blended, about 5 minutes.

Remove from the stove, cool and pour into four small plastic or paper cups.

Be careful with food coloring as it will stain, but add a little to each cup and then add a drop of detergent to each cup as well. Stir to blend with wooden sticks.

Voila! Finger paints.
