Rainbow in a Bag


1 cup cornstarch

1/3 cup sugar

4 cups water

Zip-type bags

Mix cornstarch, sugar and water together in a saucepan. Bring to a boil stirring constantly. The mixture should look a little like Vaseline. Allow to cool.

Fill bags one-third full with the cooled mixture. Add food coloring (red, yellow, green, blue) to product in the baggie. Zip up and squish the bag. Soon a rainbow full of colors will appear.

Caution: Don't hit the bags hard, as the bags will open up or holes will be made in the bag.
