D-I-Y Hand Natural Paint for toddlers

Jul 2, 2015 | Family & Life

These past few days, I’ve been running out of ideas to keep my little son busy so I can cook or check my email even while he’s awake (if you’re a mompreneur or wahm you know what I mean! ?)

I am also limiting our screen time for not more than two hours a day. (Thankful that we do not have TV & Cable right now) 

I do believe in what Pablo Picasso said That every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.

As parents, we have to help them bring out their creativity.


I found this recipe online and revised it a little, experiment with your little one, let him/her be messy, play and create with his/her tiny hands.

DIY Hand Paint Formula:

1/2 cup of Corn starch

2 cups of water

pinch of sugar

Food coloring

Jar (for storage)


In a small sauce pan, combine all ingredients, warm it until mixture thickens.

Let it cool and pour in your container, add drops of food coloring to create your desired colors.

(Mommy May of Fully Housewifed shared that she can also do this DIY Hand Paint without warming it, by just combining all the ingredients) 


And here’s Little Guy’s masterpiece:
