Painting Party Part 2- Homemade Paint

I didn't want to spend a ton of money on purchasing paint for S's pary so I looked around for some homemade paint recipe. It was very hard finding a recipe but I found one that was a no cooking one. 

It's just a few basic ingredients so making this paint should be FREE!

All you need is:
Food Coloring
Mixing Bowl

Mix together the water and flour until you have the desired consistency. Add food coloring until you have the right color. That's it!!! It's so easy! I found that the Wilton Food colorings made a nicer color but regular food coloring worked well. 

S and I tried it out. She had so much fun using it. We went through about 10 sheets of paper.
The paint came out like a water color consistency and was a little grainy. On the plus side, it seemed to dry faster than regular paint does!
