So happy I stumbled upon this Learn Play Imagine blog! So Rain can practice "art" without having to worry if she'll eat the paint or crayon or whatever. Plus, it's sooo easy to make! For a moment I actually felt like a rockstar baker while making it hahaha! (Humor me)
This is like a gooey paint that makes your toddler explore some gooey texture. It's an edible sensory paint for kids!
All you need are:
- 1/2 Cornstarch
- Food coloring (I got primary colors so I can make more colors by combining)
- 2 cups Cold water
Mix water and cornstarch and about a teaspoon of sugar in a pan in medium heat
Mix mix mix until it becomes goey.
Put in containers. Or if you have a baking pan, better. So you divide into different colors. Add a drop or two of food coloring (One drop goes a loooong way). Then mix to spread the color out.
Tadaaaa! let it cool then you're ready to go!
Now all you need to is to set up the stage. Good thing I still have lots of manila paper!
Paint time! I made Rain wear a play shirt (no pants hehehe)
Time to get messy!
Rain's first smear
She is loving the texture of the gooey paint
All she does now is feel the paint. no more painting hehe
So my sister and I stepped in and did a little "art" of our own hehe
When Rain was done she went to me and sat on my lap with her messy hands and legs hehe. Oh no!!! :-)
