Do you ever have those days where you just need to come up with something new and different to keep the kids entertained? We have these days often...when the kids are picking at each other, complaining, and just gererally grumpy. On these days, we try to drop everything and try something new. We did sidewalk paint once last year and I couldn't believe we hadn't done it again...so one day earlier this summer, we made some sidewalk paint.
It is very easy to make and you probably already have the ingredients in your home. It gets the kids outside and allows them to explore their creative side!
What you need:
1/4 Cup Cornstarch
1/4 Cup Water
A Few Drops of Food Coloring
How to make it:
1. Put the cornstarch in small containers (we used old plastic yogurt or cream cheese containers)
2. Add the water and stir it in
3. Add 6-8 drops of food coloring (can be store bought or made with natural items such as beets or turmeric)
4. Stir and take outside to paint. The paint will dry looking like chalk
