Sidewalk Chalk Paint
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.
Get your summer fun on and go paint the driveway!
