The boys had a blast with it and it cost me nothing since I already had the supplies in my pantry. I love some free fun, don’t you?!
All you need to make the paint is cornstarch, water, liquid food coloring, and a container to put it in.
Mix equal parts cornstarch and water *it took 2cups of each to make the amounts I have here*, then add in the food coloring. I used about 10 drops for all the colors except the red paint. I started with ten, but it looked like Pepto-Bismol so I put in about another five to six squirts. It still looked a little pinkish to me, but I was out of liquid red food coloring by that point. Plus it didn’t look like Pepto-Bismol anymore so I was content with it. Mix well, and Voila! Easy, Non-Toxic, Earth friendly sidewalk paint.
Our walls are concerte and all the doors are metal so we can use the paint anywhere outside!
Once done with your outdoor fun, you can store it in an airtight container *just add water if it begins to dry out*.
Plan this activity to coincide with an upcoming rainy day, and Mother Nature will clean off your sidewalk/patio for you!
