Homemade Water Colors

Posted by Becka
This is a pretty neat thing to do for your little one, especially with Easter right around the corner! 

1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 tablespoons baking soda
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 tablespoon glycerine
plastic bottle caps or paint pans, or styrofoam egg carton
red, yellow and blue food coloring

1. Mix vinegar and baking soda together in a small bowl.
2. When mixture stops foaming, add cornstarch and glycerine, mixing well.
3. Pour mixture into bottle caps or paint pans
4. Add several drops of a different food coloring to each pan or cap or carton cup. Stir until the color is well-mixed. Be sure to add plenty of coloring, since the tint will lighten upon drying. Mix primary colors to make secondary colors. For intense colors, try kool-aid or food coloring paste (Wilton makes great food coloring pastes).
5. Let set overnight to harden.
