Sidewalk paint

Last week the boys and I made sidewalk paint.   It was simple and they had lots of fun with it.   The best part is they weren’t restricted on what they could paint since it washes away.   Brody decided to paint all my flowers and the tomatoes.  If you’re looking for a way to get your kids to play outside and have fun this is it.    My boys take turns painting the fence and sidewalk and then washing it off.    This is a super cheap and easy craft that can provide hours of entertainment.

Sidewalk Paint:

  • 1/2 Cup Cornstarch
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • Food Coloring
  • empty bottle, cup or bowl to mix it in.

I found it easiest to mix the cornstarch and water in an empty drink bottle by shaking it up.   You could them pour it into different containers and add the coloring.

Here are the boys painting.
