Sidewalk Paint!


I found a recipe for Sidewalk Paint this summer in my Family Fun magazine and added it to my list of summer activities for my boys. We used to buy the Crayola Sidewalk Paint, but that stuff is expensive!

This recipe is quick and easy and you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry right now.

Sidewalk Paint

1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup water
8-10 drops food coloring

Mix ingredients and paint away! the painted dries like chalk and rinses away clean.

I like to buy those cheap chip brushes at Lowe's so the kids can make big paintings that cover lots of sidewalk. Have you painted your sidewalks yet this summer?
