My boredom buster for the day was making homemade finger paint. This was a lot of fun although the finger paint was used more for painting each other rather than paper. I'm glad we did it outside because my lawn was VERY colorful! Afterwards we had a squirt gun fight to clean each other off. My squirt gun was the hose.
3 TBS sugar
1/2 Cup Cornstarch
2 Cups COLD water
Liquid dish soap
In a medium saucepan combine sugar and cornstarch on low heat. Add water and stir until mixture thickens (this may take a few minutes). Remove from heat and separate into cups. Add a few drops of food coloring and soap to each cup. Mix and cool before play begins. Warning: Not responsible for what takes place next!
