- Small saucepan
- Measuring spoons
- Food coloring
- Small containers or bowls
- At least 1 pair of willing hands to spread the goo around!
… and then you will be able to tell them to squeeze softer or harder. A really easy and effective way for them to be successful and you not to stress out! I forgot to practice with my daughter for the first color and she probably squeezed 10 drops worth in there!
What Not To Do:
Learn from my mistake…Do not waste time on making them in individual cups and do it in the microwave.
It takes way too long to heat up every cup because it keeps boiling over like oatmeal does and makes a huge yucky mess! If you have to use your microwave do it in a huge bowl with lots of room for it to expand and keep a good eye on it.

Oh, that's it… so you skipped doing fingerpaints with ME so you could do it by YOURSELF…. thanks. Thanks a lot.

Very cool! Thanks for the recipe and most especially the Tip and What not to do! I probably would have done both those things!
