After a long Midwest winter there is nothing more blissful than warm sunshine! So the Chicago weather has us in quite a good mood. We felt obligated to take advantage such a nice day and want you to as well. Get outside with your kids and find your bliss by trying today’s activity: Sidewalk chalk paint!
Who doesn’t love covering a driveway or sidewalk in drawings? And without a messy trail of chalk? Win! All you need is corn starch, water and food dye. Using cups and a muffin tin to form a palette, we sent our Kolcraft “kids” out to test this one.
How to create your chalk paint:
- Mix together equal amounts of corn starch and water
- Add a few drops of food coloring.
- The corn starch will start to settle after the chalk solution has been sitting, but all you need to do is stir it up again.
Find some good-size brushes (we bet sponge brushes would work, too) and let your artist go!
We hope you find bliss from activities with your family like this one.
