Thank you to the viewer that contributed this recipe.

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.
