Arts & Crafts Thursday: Sidewalk Painting

From Sarah C.:

Sure, you can decorate your sidewalk using chalk. But why not paint it instead?

  • corn starch
  • food coloring
  • water
  • muffin pan (or cups/bowls)
  • paint brush(es)
  • cup of water to rinse brush(es) between colors (optional)

Start by putting a tablespoon of corn starch in each section of a small muffin pan. Then add a few drops of food coloring to each.

Take the pan outside along with a small container of water and paint brushes. Pour a little water in each section and stir. You want the mixture to have a little thickness to it. If it gets too watery, just add a pinch more corn starch.

Now, dip in your brushes and paint.

Afterward, either hose off or enjoy your artwork until the next rainfall washes it away.

Awesome idea! Did this activity this afternoon with my 3-year-old. We had a lot of fun.
