Sidewalk Paint

on June 2, 2012

Sidewalk paint is always really fun and very easy to make.  I will admit I usually end up painting as much as the kids do!  Here’s what you need

2 Tbls cornstarch

4 Tbls water

Food coloring

Cups

Paintbrushes

Each cup will be a different color of paint so I usually start by spreading them out on the counter in a straight line to make the mixing process even easier.  In each cup put 2 Tbls of cornstarch and 4 Tbls of water, mix it until the cornstarch has dissolved.  I then add food coloring to each cup to make all the colors the kids are looking for.  Put a paintbrush in each cup and head outside for some fun.  When the kids first paint the colors will look watery, but as it dries they will be become really vibrant!  Have fun!
