This homemade sidewalk chalk paint is safe for the wee little ones that still like to eat everything in sight! You can create this fun activity by involving the kids in both making it and then playing with it outside! This is a great way to keep them busy this spring and summer!
Wipes for clean up
Mix together equal parts of cornstarch and water. Start off with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water. Mix together until you have a smooth consistency. You shouldn't feel any drag from the cornstarch, but it also shouldn't be too liquify either. It should pour off your spoon and not leave a layer of cornstarch goo in the bowl or on your spoon.
Now add the food colouring! You will want to make a few batches so you can have a few colours of chalk paint.
** Be sure your kids are wearing playclothes and wash hands after play. It came off quite easy. It also washes off the sidewalk nicely too.
