Sidewalk Chalk Fun: DIY Chalk Paint

DIY Sidewalk Chalk Paint Recipe: So Easy and Fun - Perfect for Kids for the Summer!  - www.sweetlittleonesblog.com


My kids love sidewalk chalk so we tried something new with the chalk this week:  we made Katie's DIY Sidewalk Paint Recipe from last year!  It was so easy and is made out of edible ingredients...just in case!

You have to try chalk paint this summer - your kids will love it!


DIY Sidewalk Chalk Paint

Ingredients:
2 Tbsp. Cornstarch
4 Tbsp. Water
Food Coloring

Materials:
Foam or Paint Brushes
Muffin Tin

Directions:
1.  Combine cornstarch and water in one muffin tin.  Stir gently until smooth.

2.  Add food coloring to make desired color and stir.  (We used 3 drops per color.  For pink and yellow it was perfect.  Next time, I think I will add 2-3 drops more for green and blue.)

3.  Repeat until you have all the different colors you want.

4.  Use foam or paint brushes to draw with the chalk paint!

Notes:
I wasn't sure if the chalk paint would stain their clothes, so I had J and B wear their swimsuits with play clothes.  So I can't guarantee that it won't stain, but everything they got on them came out in the wash!
