The other evening the kids were driving me bonkers. (Kids do that sometimes, in case you didn’t know.) So after supper I decided I’m not going to try to get anything done. I’ll just do something fun with the kiddies. Because really, that’s getting something done too, right?
I also needed to give Jada something to color with. Instead of crayons. On the porch. Silly girl.
I tried painting a little bit. It’s kind of strange stuff. You have to re-dip your brush pretty often as it all runs off the brush in the first couple inches of your stroke. But I really like the neon colors and they way it dries immediately. Oh. And the fact that is washes off. It rained that night and there wasn’t any sign of it in the morning. Yes! Bravo for another Pinterest find!
Sidewalk Chalk Paint
Recipe from here
1 cup cornstarch
1 cup water
food coloring (gel or drops)
Mix the cornstarch and water until smooth. Divide the mixture between muffin cups and tint each one with food coloring. Stir well. Apply to sidewalks or brick wall with paint brushes. Wash off when finished or let nature do the job later.
