Homemade Sidewalk Chalk Paint

Chalk paint turned out to be more amazing (and a bit messier) than I anticipated. Here’s the recipe…

The Best Sidewalk Chalk Recipe Ever

1 1/4 cup corn starch

1 cup water

Food Coloring (optional)

Mix corn starch and water together & paint! The mixture may appear a little translucent at first but dries opaque! My toddlers and I enjoyed splashing it on the sidewalk and making footprints and handprints. 1 hour of toddler fun equates to hours of fun for any elementary aged kid (or their parents).

Total project cost:$2.39 (16oz of corn starch)

Paint brushes, sponges, toothbrushes, shower loofas, or even a basting brush are perfect applicators!
