This week we made sidewalk chalk paint and painted our patio area, which is now super pretty!
To make the paint, I mixed water, corn starch and food coloring. I used a good amount of corn starch, but kept the mixture on the watery side. I found the thicker it was, the harder it was to spread around.
This is a funny medium to work with. When you paint it on, the "paint" is pretty watery and does not look like it has too much color to it. But when it dries, it totally looks like chalk!
Of course, the kiddos ended up just pouring out the jars.. who needs a paint brush anyway?
