Sidewalk Paint

A fun and easy activity for these last few lazy days of summer, Sidewalk Paint!  Maybe I'm the last to the party on this one, but it isn't something we've ever made before.  Yesterday afternoon seemed like the perfect time to try it and we loved it.  The colors are so bright and pretty!  Couldn't be easier to mix up, either. Mix together 1/2 cup cornstarch with 1/2 cup water.  Divide into as many cups as you want colors.  We did four and had plenty of paint.  Add several drops of food coloring to each bowl and stir.  That's it.  See?  Easy! We did find that sponge brushes worked especially well after a bit of trial and error.  Paint away!

You're not the last to the party. I've never heard of that handy little recipe. Just might have to give it a go this weekend!
