Colorful chalky paint

What kid wouldn’t love to paint your front walk with chalk? It couldn’t be easier to create a chalky paint that goes on wet then dries opaque, just like sidewalk chalk. It’s the perfect activity for budding artists — and a ton of fun for the whole family. 

Here’s what you need:

  • Water
  • Cornstarch
  • Food coloring
  • Paper cups
  • Paintbrushes, rollers or sponges

Here’s what to do:

  • Mix equal parts water and cornstarch until dissolved.
  • If you’d like to make different colors, separate the mixture into a few paper cups. If not, put the whole mixture into one paper cup.
  • Add a bit of food coloring to each cup.

Bust out your old paintbrushes, rollers or sponges and watch the kids’ creativity come alive outside.
