Here's a great finger paint recipe that you can make yourself that can be used on standard white paper, construction paper, or finger paint paper.  This paint is 100% non-toxic, so you do not have to worry about the kids putting it in their mouth.  If you want to use it as a regular paint, purchase foam applicators from a craft store.  Store the paint in baby food jars for the best results, and the longest shelf life.

Mix flour and water together and cook over low heat until thick.

Let cool completely.

Add a small pinch of salt (prolongs shelf life).

Separate the mixture into baby food jars.

Add 3-4 drops of food coloring in each jar and stir until the color is well blended.
