How To Make Your Own Colored Powder

Mix cornstarch, water and food coloring in a kitchen aid until well blended.
Then pour into a baking dish and bake at 200 degrees for 20 minutes.

The powder will dry into a very soft brick.
Blend it up to a fine powder in a blender or food processor.

Measure Powder into 1/2 cup portions and put in sandwich bags.

I used the fold over sandwich bags because they are 

so cheap and I have a sealer.

I put wrapping paper around a Cheetos box to store the colors in
so it would be easy for many hands to grab a bag and go quickly.

    1. Yes it does stain. I asked the kids to wear a shirt they don't mind getting color stain on.

    1. The color came out of the jeans, but they were pretty dark jeans.

  4. How many bags does this recipe make? how many kids did you have at your party?

    1. I didn't count the bags, but we had about 30 kids at the party.
