Here is a fun little concoction that combines two of my kids' favorite things: Painting and playing outside. I know they sell sidewalk paint at the store, but this costs almost nothing to make and you can choose your own colors.
Ingredients: (per color)
1/4 C cornstarch
1/4 C water
Stir the water and cornstarch together until the cornstarch is completely dissolved.
Add the desired amount of food coloring and stir.
Repeat for each color.
I used 4 oz baby food containers to store the paints and they were the perfect size. We used the small sponge brushes to paint the sidewalk.
|I recommend smocks or painting clothes for this activity|
These were such a big hit that I had neighborhood kids knocking on my door asking me to make them paint. That being said, you may want to make some extra paint. :)
|These works of art came right off with just water|
