Kids like to do all sorts of art projects, but some of these can turn out to be an expensive hobby. For instance, let’s take painting. Once your kid starts to paint, it can seem a never ending activity, as it can go on until there is no paint left. He/she will have a great time, but the next day you’ll have to go and buy some new colors. To save some money, you can make the paint at home and it will be the same as the store-bought one, if not better. The recipe for your homemade paint is simple: one cup salt, one cup flour, one cup water and food coloring.
Mix the ingredients in a bowl and store the paint in clean ketchup bottles. This is great for two reasons, as you will be both recycling and creating any color of paint that you want. Besides this, when your child finishes one bottle of paint, you can easily make a new one at home in a few minutes.
