Home Made Edible Finger Paint Recipe

It’s totally edible (though not that delicious!) and completely non-toxic, and the best part is it is so easy to make and will last! 


* 2 cups of corn flour 
* 1 cup of cold water
* 4.5 cups of boiling water
* Liquid food colouring

Mix the cornflour with the cold water and stir together. Pour in the boiling water and stir between each cup. It goes really strange (you are basically mixing a hot goop) but keep stirring and it literally seems to “melt” into a wonderful, custard-like consistency. We then separated it into individual jam jars before adding colouring, but you can do it however you like and this is the stage to add colour.
