How To Make Corn Flour Paste - one for the kids

We love art and craft here at The Beetle Shack, so much so that sometimes I actually allow the kids to make a mess and get into it. Corn flour Paint/ Paste is a super quick and easy way to keep them entertained. Here is the basic recipe for you to add to your 'kids craft' pinterest board!


So it's a little lumpy and kind of transparent but i've never had any complaints from my young ones about that. Corn flour  paste is easy to make, seriously cheap, incredibly practical and so much fun to use. It easily wipes away from the benches and washes off clothes too.


 All you need is corn flour, water* and colouring.

And it alleviates the problem of the young ones using up all of my studio supplies.

Go on, make some and let the kids go to town... or really go mental and make some Oobleck.
