It’s super easy to whip up and cleans up easily with rain or the hose!

The recipe is a 1 to 1 ratio, but for simplicity we’ll use 1 cup. You’ll need:

  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • food coloring (pastels are achieved with a drop or two, primary colors will need 5 or 6 drops)
  • plastic bowls or cups
  • paint brushes

Mix cornstarch and water together until smooth. Divide and add food coloring until you reach your desired colors.
