Sidewalk Paint: Homemade Style

I had a case of Crayola Sidewalk paint that I bought at a thrift store. We used it up quickly! My girls had a lot of fun with it and I knew I'd be able to make our own....cheaply!! And without having 4 more plastic bottles to recycle.

A quick little search brought me to this site with a recipe.

Bada Bing Bada Boom....we made our own.

It was quick, easy, and fun! And it worked!

Just mix 1/4 cup of Corn Starch with 1/4 cup of water and add food coloring to suit your taste.

I will say the green and blue needed more than one layer to be vibrant, but honestly, so did the store bought stuff. Also, this stuff is Slippery When Wet!! So, be careful if it rains shortly after painting!! We painted in the garage since it's so blazing hot and sunny...we were in the shade and had a fan blowing on us. Daddy had to hose it all down so he didn't slip while trying to work in there!
