Rainbow Stew

Have your kids ever seen those commercials for those artsy magic board things. For only $19.95 you can own your own . . .

Or you can make your own.

Rainbow Stew

Materials Needed:
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup corn starch
4 cups water
Food Coloring


Mix together all ingredients in a sauce pan. Stir constantly and heat until the mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat and let cool.

Divided the mixture into three bowls. Add a different color of food coloring to each bowl (1-red, 1-blue, 1-yellow). Put approximately three tablespoon of each color into a ziplock bag. Seal the bag and tape the top closed. Knead the baggie to mix colors just enough to look like a rainbow rainbow. Lay bag down on a hard surface and gently press to flatten it. I usually double bag mine.
