home-made finger paint

A couple of days ago, several fellow n@wies shared recipes on how to make home-made finger paint. Among the different recipes contributed i find this the easiest to make. It also requires the least number of ingredients. The original recipe calls for 2 cups of flour and water. I thought that that might be too much to make and only made half that amount.  

Here's what you'll need:
 2 cups flour
2 cups cold water
food color

Step 1: Pour water onto a bowl

Step 2: Gradually add flour and mix well

Step 3: Divide the mixture into smaller bowls (empty baby food bottles work well for this purpose!)

Step 4: Add food coloring

Note: You may also use emtpy yogurt cups to hold or dispense small amounts of paint

Needless to say, my little toddler, who seems to have an affinity to any activity that is synonymous to the word "mess" (whose toddler isn't?), had fun smooshing and pouring the paint around.

He, however, seemed more interested in spreading the paint over garden rocks instead of paper!
