How To Make Homemade Finger Paint | Dearmommies

How to make your own finger paints using everyday household ingredients? I decided to use this very easy recipe to make our own finger paints today since we were out of the store bought ones. We used cornstarch for this recipe because I like the consistency much better than if we had just used flour. My toddler loved it. It’s non-toxic; safe for babies to paint with their little fingers.


What you will need:

  • 1/2 Cup of Cornstarch
