Baby Safe Paints DIY

I wanted to start doing more creative things with Baby Boo throughout each week, so last week we decided to do some painting! She has never done painting before, and was so excited! Actually allowed to dip her hands in things and wipe it everywhere! Haha.

I know you can buy Baby Safe paints, or washable poster paints, but I decided there must be an easier way to make my own, and there is!

You will need;
* 1/2 Cup Cornflour (cornstarch)
* A few drops of various food colouring
* 2 Cups Hot Water
* 2 Tbs Sugar

1. Mix the cornflour, gradually adding the water.
2. Once they are mixed well, and the mixture isn't floury, stir in the sugar until it dissolves.
3. I recommend sharing the mixture between different pots, and adding the colouring to each one. You really only need 1 or 2 drops.

Have Fun! We did. :)

Let me know if you try it :)

Oh this sounds like a good recipe for paint, I want to paint more with my toddler and want something safe for her to use.
