“Happimess” is finger painting

Hello my friends. I know, I know, finger painting with Toddlers can seem scary and like you have to grow at least 4 more arms. You will be surprised how easy and less messy this finger paint activity is. Loads of sensory input for your LO 🙂 Enjoy

Fun Fingerpaints
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 6 T. white sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • food color/koolaid powder or jello powder
  • Essential Oil (opt)

In a medium size pan, place all the ingredients and stir over medium heat. The mixture will go from white to transparent and from liquid to thick “jello” consistancy. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Place in 4-6 containers depending on how many colors you are creating. Add drops of food color or koolaid/jello powder to make colors. Stir until well incorporated into all of the mixture. Add a drop of edible Essential Oil in each color. I like Lavender in purple; Lime in green; etc. I use Young Living because I trust it. That’s it! Easy Peasy!
