fun in the kitchen



     
          MAKE YOUR OWN WATER COLOR PAINT
         WITH STUFF YOU ALREADY HAVE ON HAND




Making your own water color paints from your kitchen is Super easy


you will need

3 Tablespoons Baking soda
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
3 Tablespoons white vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons corn syrup

food coloring

In a bowl mix all but the food coloring
divide the mix among little pots, soda pop lids, ice cube trays  whatever little thing you have to put it in.
We used an ice cube tray that makes sticks for water bottles.





Once divided, mix a few drops of food coloring in each portion of color



Can be used right away, but it is better to let the paints dry overnight.

This is alot cheaper than buying paints already made.
