Your kids will love getting to paint with watercolors that you made right at home! Kids can mix and match to make their paints in any color they can imagine, and you can rest easy knowing these paints are made from ingredients straight out of the pantry!

Recipe for solid homemade watercolour paint discs:

  • 4 tbsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Light Corn Syrup (also known as Karo syrup )
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch (known as corn flour in the UK)
  • Food colouring (gels produce a more intense colour than liquid food colouring)
  • Mini Muffin Tin (or ice cube tray)

Check out how they are made via the link below……….
