Non-Toxic Finger Paint

We all know that kids are going to eat whatever they are playing with. Whether it be mud, plato, carpet fuzz— you name it, and they will try to eat it.

Now your kids can have one messy fun time without you having to worry about them putting poison into their mouths.



  • 3 tbs sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 2 cups water


  • Combine ingredients in saucepan.
  • Add food coloring drops until desired color is reached.
  • Warm mixture until it thickens.
  • After the mixture has cooled down, simply pour it into your jars.

That’s it! I don’t suppose anyone said you have to actually paint with it. You could just put several multi-colored jars on display somewhere!
