Poofy Cheeks: Sidewalk Chalk Paint

Sidewalk Chalk Paint

I have seen sidewalk chalk paint before and thought ‘my kids would make a big huge mess with that. More would end up on their clothes than on THEM!’ I was wrong! My husband committed a crime and tossed all of the sidewalk chalk while cleaning out the garage a month ago. It was a beautiful day and the boys wanted to play outside. I instantly thought of the paint and knew I had all of the supplies to whip some up!

Seriously – the boys had a BLAST! Mixing the colors is also educational for the them. The boys are getting familiar with color mixing and watching the droplets of food coloring come together to make a new color was rocket science to them. (Even I had to get in on some of the fun!)
To make it I mixed equal parts of cornstarch and water. We used 3 tablespoons of each, and then two-three drops of food coloring.
Since it had food coloring in it I was nervous that it wouldn’t wash out of their clothes or might be difficult to wash off of the driveway. I was wrong and wrong. It washed right out of their shirts and the rain completely removed all traces of it on our driveway.
