I know this post is way late with Thanksgiving just a week away, but I really wanted to share the pictures. I put them on FB, and forgot to post them here. I found some homemade Finger Paint recipes to try, and I must say that they turned out really cool, and Katelyn had a blast with them.
They are not exactly "edible" as in LUNCH, but there is nothing harmful in them for when they do eat it.
What You Need:
1/2 cup Corn Starch (or Flour)
3 TBS Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
2 Cups Water
For this simple fun time, just combine all but the food coloring into a saucepan. Stir with a wisk and Heat until sauce thickens. Remove from heat, let cool, spoon into containers. Add food coloring, and enjoy. I used empty baby food jars, and this amount filled four of them perfectly.
I was surprised that the coloring actually did not stain our skin that much. Blue was the first color that I made, and not thinking I put like 5 drops in it...it was very bright!
Here are some links to other sites for Finger Paints.
Victoria got to carve her first pumpkin! It was awesome on the front porch.
