Thrifty Thursday - Homemade Art Supplies

During the cold winter months, arts and crafts projects can be a lifesaver. While it can be important to have store bought supplies for some things, having recipes for homemade versions using household ingredients is a great way to save money. The ingredients are everyday things you will already have in the cupboard and you can make more when they run out (trust me, this will happen!) Most of you will have a handy Playdough recipe but check out these other homemade art supplies like the Frozen Popsicle Chalk and Facepaint. And if you are wondering what Cornstarch is, it's actually Cornflour! Who knew?!
