Holi is a fun festival and playing Holi with safe colors makes it even more fun.
I made some safe Eco-friendly colors with corn starch and food color. I Experimented this two years back, it was a huge success and have made these every year since then.
If you do not have corn starch then see this video for an alternative.
If you do not have food colors then see this video for an alternative.
This is a super fun DIY activity to do, it’s safe, easy and failproof.
Let’s see how to make Holi Colors
- 1/4 cup water
- Food color few drops ( Colors of your choice)
- 3-4 tbsp of corn starch
Instructions to make Holi colors
Just mix around 1/4 cup water with food color. To that add around 3-4 tbsp of corn starch, a little at a time mixing well. When you have added enough corn starch and mixing becomes difficult, pour the solution on a plastic sheet or cling wrap. Let it dry completely for a few hours. After it dries completely, crush into pieces and grind in a mixer to form a smooth powder. Your Holi colors are ready to use…HAPPY HOLI!
