Corn Syrup Finger Paint (non-toxic)

Corn Syrup Finger Paint – Non-Toxic

Light corn syrup
Liquid food coloring
Small paper plates or bowls

Place about a tablespoon of corn syrup for each color you want onto separate plates or bowls. Add some food coloring to the corn syrup. Mix with fingers, cotton swaps, etc. Paint.

Have your child paint with whatever they desire on a piece of paper. Try various shapes of sponges, q-tips, different brushes, etc.

You can even make hand prints at special times of the year to remember what your child’s hands looked like at that age. Make sure to put their name on it and the year and date it was made.
