Homemade Sidewalk Paint

Using chalk to draw on the sidewalk is fun, but sometimes my little artists need something new to mix things up a bit.  In this case we turn to some homemade sidewalk paint made with just 3 easy ingredients.  Here is all you need:

1. 1 part Cornstarch (I usually start with 1 cup)

2. 1 part Water (I usually start with 1 cup)

3. Food Coloring

Mix together your cornstarch and water in a big bowl with a whisk.  Then divide the mixture up into a cupcake pan.  Add drops of your favorite food coloring to each section and mix it together to mix the color in.  Hand your little artists a brush and let them get creative.  Don’t be afraid to let them get a little messy!  It adds to the fun.
