My boys love to paint and do anything that involves getting messy. So I thought it was so awesome when I came across this recipe to make homemade paint. How awesome it that? I’ll never have to buy kids pain again! I can also make whatever color I want when I want. This paint dries so fast I don’t have to worry about the kids coming back to touch it later and getting dirty again.
Here is what you will need:
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1/2 cup water
- Ziplock bags
What to do:
- Blend 1/2 cup of flour with 1/2 cup of salt. Add 1/2 cup of water…
- and mix until smooth
- Divide it up into three sandwich bags and add a few drops of liquid watercolor or food coloring to each bag.
Squish them up until it is all mixed pretty good. We had to add a little more water because ours came out a little too thick. We put the paint into Ziplock bags, it made it a lot easier for the kids. I cut the corners off the ziplock bags and let the kids squeeze the paint mixture into your squeeze bottle.
The boys had so much fun making their own paint!
