Edible Finger Paint
1 cup of flour
1 cup of hot water
1 1/2 cups cold water
2 Tbsp salt
Mix the flour, salt and cold water in a saucepan and stir well. Smooth out any lumps. Add a cup of hot water to the mixture and stir well. Put the saucepan on the stove and let it boil on medium high heat. Stir constantly until the mixture thickens. Monitor the mixture as it boils to ensure it doesn't burn or turn into clumps. Turn off the heat as soon as the mixture thickens. Place the mixture in a bowl. Use a mixer or whisk and beat the mixture until very smooth.

A few tips I learned:
After whisking for about 5 minutes the mixture still had clumps so a ran it through a strainer to remove them.
If I was making this recipe for just a couple of kiddos I would cut the recipe in half or maybe in fourths. It made a lot of paint.
