Sidewalk Chalk Paint

We have been trying to enjoy every last bit of warm weather we have left.  We needed something to do outside.  So we whipped up some Sidewalk Chalk Paint.  And painted to our hearts content.  It was super easy and super fun! 


Sidewalk Chalk Paint “Recipe”

Mix together:

1/4 cup of cold water
1/4 cup of cornstarch
**small** amount of food coloring to give it a little bit of color. (Do not add a lot of food coloring...after washing the green paint off the sidewalk, I noticed it left a very light stain use food coloring at your own risk)!

We chose to use real paint brushes, I picked up a three pack from the Dollar Tree.  I thought if we used foam brushes they would fall apart when we painted with them on the sidewalk.
