the prettiest fingers i ever did see

We dumped some Martha Stewart craft glitter into our homemade finger-paint and it was preeeeeeeety.
I hated the finger-paint recipe we used so I'm not going to post it.  
If anyone has any suggestions for an awesome recipe PLEASE TELL ME. I've been searching for 4 years! We try a new recipe every time and there aren't any that I love. Same goes for play-dough. 


  1. When you find a finger paint one- post it please! :) Even if thats in four more years. ;)

  2. Here is a recipe my mom always made when we were growing up. I always loved it. Super soft!

    4 cups of flour
    1 cup salt
    2 tsp shortening
    2 tsp alum (you can find it in the spice area of the store)
    2 cups boiling water.

    Mix all together and add the food coloring you desire. Or wait until you can portion it out and add it then. Then knead with a little flour for 5 minutes. Store in ziplock bags.

  3. That's for play-dough. Sorry! I should have put that in there somewhere. ;)
