Hi! I'm Jennifer from Jenerally Speaking which was once called Life with the Lebedas.
I'm a stay at home Mom of two very active toddlers - two and four. My girls are constantly wanting to 'go do something' but as a Mom on a budget I'm always trying to finding fun ways to teach my children we can be creative in our own home!
My girls and I love making our own Sidewalk Chalk Paint!
For only $5, you can purchase all the ingredients unless you already have them in your pantry!
2 Tbsp of Cornstarch (per color)
2 Tbsp of Water (per color)
Paint Brushes that your prepared to throw away
cups for color
First, add your 2 Tbsp of cornstarch to your cup. Then 2 Tbsp of water and 6-8 drops of food coloring and mix away!!
Note: It's a lot easier to mix when you add the cornstarch first.
I let my girls have fun measuring it out. If they add a little more of one ingredient, it won't hurt anything. :)
Then give them a paint brush you don't mind trashing at the end of their activity
Harder tipped brushes work the best.
The colors go on so bright ...
and they dry with a chalky look!
Enjoy this fun family activity!
