Kids Week {Day 5}

Sidewalk paint is really easy to make. All you need is
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/3 cup water
food coloring

Mix the cornstarch and the water together until completely blended. Pour the mixture into bowls. Add food coloring. Then just mix up again to blend the food coloring in. 

Take the paints outside and decorate your sidewalk. I'm not a big fan of chalk, it gives me the chills so when we discovered this I loved it. Oliver could take it or leave it. He did like when I used it though, so the first time we did this, we practiced his letters. Now he asks for it, and I don't mind making it because it's super easy. 
 Comes right off with water too. 

I love the way it looks when it dries. This would be a perfect party activity for a birthday or a summer get together for the kids. 

Get caught up!
