Flour and Water Finger Painting



  • ~ Brown paper bags (grocery bags)
  • ~ Scissors
  • ~ 1/2 Cup White flour
  • ~ 1/2 Cup Water
  • ~ 1 tsp. Salt
  • ~ Wheat germ


  • From the brown bags, cut the shape of a bread slice.
  • Prepare a mixture of flour and water that is the consistency of paint.
  • Add the salt.
  • Let the children fingerpaint with the flour & water mixture on their bread shapes.
  • Sprinkle bits of wheat germ over the top, while it is still wet.

Hint: This project has a tendency to curl at the edges as it dries, so you might want to set something heavy around it, such as canned goods.
