DIY Sidwalk Chalk

By 9:33 AM

Do you have kids? Nephews? Nieces? Or are you a kid at heart? Looking for the perfect outdoor summer activity? I have your answer:

DIY Sidewalk Chalk Paint

The recipe for this chalk is so easy it is barely worth listing out. Basically, you want to combine 1 part water to 1 part cornstarch and then add a touch of food coloring. You can make batches of each color of chalk as big or small as you want, but as long as you keep the one-to-one ratio, you'll be good to go.
What you need (per color):
1/4 Cornstarch
1/4 Cup Water
A few drops of food coloring

What to do:
In a plastic cup, dump in 1/4 cup cornstarch.

Next, add 1/4 cup water.

Add a few drops of food coloring and stir well again.

Repeat in a new cup for each color desired.

Paint your drive!
[note: The cornstarch will settle a bit as time passes so just be sure to stir up the paint before you use it each time]

HAVE FUN!
