Sidewalk Paint

Taylor and I had fun making sidewalk paint this weekend. The recipe is simple:

1/2 cup of cornstarch

1/2 cup of water

Food coloring

Stir together cornstarch and water and add a few drops of food coloring to get desired color.

I divided the recipe into thirds and made 3 different colors.

The paint is really cool! It's liquid, so it goes on like paint but dries like chalk. Very cool.

Note: This paint will wash off easily from the concrete but it will stain clothing because of the food coloring, so be sure to wear a smock or play clothes that are OK to get messy!

That looks cool! I gave up food coloring long ago. Find washable watercolor paint and use that where ever a craft recipe calls for food coloring. It won't stain your hands or clothes like food coloring will - washes right out! I used to use it to color ooblick, shaving cream, gak, everything!
