I was asked to visit our local Shopping Centre and do painting activities with the kids. I decided that instead of buying the paint we could make our own. I did some research and tested a few different receipes. This is the best one I found and the one we used.
Home Made Paint Receipe
What you will need: 1 cup plain flour, 1 cup cold water, 1 cup dishwashing
liquid, food colouring.
What you will need to do: Combine the flour and
water. Stir in the dishwashing liquid and mix well. Pour into separate bottles
and then add the food colouring.
This paint worked particularly well for the straw and marble painting as it has quite a runny consistency. I ended up buying some craft (poster) paint to use for stamping and sponge painting.
