Has anyone ever made home-made finger paint?

If so how long do you think it keeps for?

Thanks

depends on your ingredients. Mine kept for about a month or so but it was basically flour and water with a few other things.

it never lasts long enough to worry about it in my house...lol but I use flour, water, and coloring, so I would guess it would last a couple weeks

Thanks, I want to make some for the kids and was wondering if it was worth making in a big batch or on a as needed basis.

Share recipe please.

Mine is too young (6 months) don't you think? And I was thinking about this very thing the other day when I was trying to get his hand prints and he sure was eating the paint I was using....NOT good. Don't report me, I stopped him of course, but it's probably not the best thing LOL

PS: 3rdontheway. I was hoping my Jan08 baby would be the 14th (that's my sister's birthday) but he came on the 11th though.

Re: Has anyone ever made home-made finger paint?

Mine usually only keeps about 30~ hours. THen it starts to get kinda ... yeasty? I don't bother to keep it over night anymore. But I did find that i could make little aluminum foil bowls and then I didn't have anything to clean up. Of course, I haven't tried the cooked kind yet. I think I will...::dashes off::
