Kid Activities: Sidewalk Paint

Monday, June 21, 2010

My daycare children love to play with sidewalk chalk. I have one who will write and draw for most of the time we're outside. So, I was happy to come acrosss this sidewalk paint recipe. I think my daycare children would love to help make their own.

Sidewalk Paint Recipe:

1 cup Cornstarch
Cold water
Tempera Paint--multiple colors

Mix the cornstarch with enough cold water to make a paintable consistency.

Separate into smaller batches

Add a couple of teaspoons of tempera paint to reach desired color.

Mix the paint into your batch.

Let children have fun painting the sidewalk, patio, or driveway.
