I came across this washable finger paint recipe and wanted to try it out. My kids loved helping me make it and then they enjoyed finger painting with it. It took about 10 minutes to make and it was very easy.
What you will need:
2 tbsp sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
2 cups water
large sauce pan
1/4 cup dishwashing soap (Dawn)
In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, and water.
Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat (under adult supervision), stirring constantly until the mixture thickens into a smooth gel. Stir in the dishwashing soap.
Pour into individual containers.
Place food coloring in each container and mix while it is still warm.
Let cool, then store in glass containers (or other container a lid).
And use like finger paint.

Making your own edible play dough
I love watching Jon and Kate plus Eight on TLC. The latest rerun that I saw was when Kate made this edible play dough for her kids. I wanted to try it out! I found the recipe for it here.
Girl Scout Peanut Butter Play Dough

1/2 cup Honey
2 cups powdered sugar
Mix all ingredients in a bowl, using your hands. Dough should feel soft and pliable. Form shapes and be creative!
