Totally-Fun Tuesday #2

Fruity Finger Paints

(This recipe came from The Ultimate Book Of Kid Concoctions 2)
by: John E. Thomas & Danita Thomas

2 cups flour
2 Tbs. (2 envelopes) unsweetened drink mix
1/2 cup salt
3 cups hot water
3 Tbs. cooking oil
Freezer paper

1. Mix flour, drink mix, and salt together
2. Stir in water and cooking oil
3. Paint on the freezer paper.

My kids had a lot of fun making and painting with this paint! I do need to warn you that this makes tons! You could probably cut it down to a 1/4 and still have more than enough! I cut the recipe in half and each one of my kids still had a bowl full of paint!

They loved watching it turn colors!
Plus, it smells nice and fruity!

This is my 6 year olds finished product. In Kindergarten we kid spell. (meaning write what sounds you hear) It might not look like much; but after teaching Kindergarten for 10 years you just learn to see it! :)
Plus, I was standing there when he was sounding it out!
