water colour

took leave one day to play with the "gang"...so i made some water colour for them to mess the house...the maid pengsan...but i dun care la...i lurve creating work for her.

got the water colour recipe from marthastewart website.

homemade finger paints are nontoxic, washable, and always available. great for ellisa since we need to be so careful with her.

Stir 4 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 cup cornstarch together; add 2 cups of cold water, and heat over medium heat until the mixture is thick (the mixture will further thicken as it cools).

Divide into four or more containers, and add food coloring as desired.

the 'gang' really have a colourful time painting the house down.
