How to Make DIY Liquid Starch for Your Kid's Craft Projects!

Liquid starch is used in a variety of craft projects, such as slime (get my recipe here), marbling paint, paper mache and bubbles. It's so easy to make!

You'll need: 

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch 
  • 4 cups cold water, divided 
  • 2-3 drops fragrant essential oil or lemon juice (optional)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Bring 3 3/4 cups water to a rolling boil. 
  2. While waiting for water to boil, mix cornstarch into 1/4 cup water. Stir constantly until cornstarch is completely dissolved. 
  3. Once water boils, slowly stir in cornstarch mixture. 
  4. If using essential oil or lemon juice, add to mixture and continue to stir for one minute. 
  5. Remove from heat and let cool.
