Homemade finger paints, Attempt #1- FAIL

I found a finger paint recipe on Pinterest using items I have in my kitchen.  I followed the directions exactly and this is what I got:

Looks so pretty right?  But when we went to stick our fingers in it, the "paint" was thicker than jello.  I was able to add some water and use a KNIFE to stir (slice) it into a chunky consistency.

Fortunately 2 year olds don't really care that it's not what it looked like on Pinterest.  Kaylee had a blast squishing it through her fingers and painting her masterpiece.

Onto the next recipe.  If you have one that you've tried and swear by I'd love for you to share!  This one was cornstarch, sugar, salt, water cooked on the stove then food coloring at the end.

Pinterest idea gone wrong

I get a little crazy trying everything I see on Pinterest.

Today my 2.5 year old was my victim subject but she wasn't having it.  Maybe tomorrow she'll be happier about laying her precious head on concrete...
