Edible finger paint

We have been doing quite alot of painting recently, using poster paint. S still puts things in her mouth so I decided to use homemade edible paint instead. I searched and looked at a few different blogs for a recipe and tried one of them and had to change it to suit my liking. Here is my recipe:


Mix 1 cup of corn flour with 1/2 cup of cold water


Stir in 2 cups of boiling water, one at a time, keep stirring until you get your desired consistency, if it is too runny add some more corn flour, if too tick add some boiling water. Just be aware when it cools down it will be alot thicker.


Now separate into small jars and mix in food colouring. I only used the three primary colours and kept a jar without any colour (white). Secondary colours are made where primary colour paints meet on paper.
