Finger paint

You are at home and feel like doing something? Your fingers are already tingling? Then we have a few ideas for you. Sometimes you might need the help of your parents or bigger siblings.

What you need:

  • 5 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 100 ml cold water
  • Food coloring
  • Whisk
  • Bowl

Here we go:

Mix the flour in a bowl with the salt and food coloring. Then slowly add the cold water and stir with a whisk until there are no more lumps in your mixture. Is the color still too liquid? Then add a little flour. Is it already too thick and viscous? Then just add a little more water and stir again. Depending on the type of flour, the mixing ratio may be slightly different. For very young children, a thick finger paint is probably better for hand painting. For painting with a brush, mix it a little thinner.
