My girls love sidewalk chalk so when I saw this idea a friend of mine posted on Facebook and Instagram, I knew I wanted to try it. It takes sidewalk art to a whole new level!
You will need:
food coloring (lots of it)
First combine your cornstarch and water and pour into the container. We used muffin tins which worked perfectly!...
Then add your food coloring. I started with about 10-12 drops each, then I added more until I reached the desired color. It dries much lighter.
The whole family had fun with this. I'll be honest, I think Brad and I had a little more fun than the kids. Don't let Jo Jo fool you. She isn't painting. She is chasing ants....which I believe she ate once they were caught. The girl puts everything in her mouth! Something B and Mel never did!!! The saying stands true, each kid is different.
We found that thick, soft paintbrushes worked best...
This makes me happy!...
We did this craft on Friday and it stayed all weekend until it rained this afternoon. I went to the store last night and stocked up on more cornstarch. I think we will paint our sidewalk/patio often!...Or at least Brad and I will ;)
And here are a couple shots of miss Jo that I had to share...
1 1/4 Cups cornstarch
1 C. water
Combine the cornstarch and water. Pour into containers. Add food coloring. Start painting!
Note: thick, soft paintbrushes work best.
