It was a long, rainy Saturday in Richmond, VA this past weekend, and my toddler was over Thomas the Train, Peter Pan, and Mickey’s Clubhouse. I knew I had to act fast or suffer the consequences. One quick “toddler activities” search on Pinterest later, and we were in business. While my husband distracted her with Cheerios, I went to work in the kitchen prepping cornstarch finger paint.
1/2 cup corn starch
2 cups water
Mix water and corn starch in a saucepan. Try your best to get rid of the clumps.
Bring to a boil and stir until it reaches a gel-like consistency.
Portion off into smaller bowls for cooling and store remainder for another time.
Add food coloring and voila!
Set up for your toddler.
Let him/her go to town. Note: This recipe is great because it is super thick and will not spill as my daugher was awesome enough to demonstrate for you below.
Get dressed and go to the Children’s Museum of Richmond.
