Sidewalk Painting

I know by now you've seen these paints all over blogland, but we had so much fun today I just had to share
The kids painted their feet as much as the sidewalk

All you need to make the sidewalk paint is 1 part cornstarch

+ 1 part water

mix it up and add a few drops of food coloring
now you get to paint!

Girlie started scooping and pouring it on the sidewalk

little artists!
We will be doing this again and again throughout the summer.  So easy and lots of fun.  The kids' hands were a little stained from the food coloring, but I'm sure they'll be better in a couple days.

Hope you're having a fun summer so far!

    Thank you so much for linking up to last week's "A Little Birdie Told Me...". My apologies for the belated vist -- with July 4 falling on a Monday, it threw my whole schedule off, and I'm just now making the rounds to visit the party-goers from that week. Best, Jenn

    P.S. I'm featuring your post on my Facebook page.

  21. love this simple recipe. I will have to try it - I imagined a much more complex process.

    Would love for you to share this & any other fun ideas on the Sunday Showcase Child Centered Linky Party -


  22. Still- it never get old! Thank you for sharing this idea with us on The Sunday Showcase ;-)

  23. I remember when I was little my mom would get mad that I had paint over me after painting. I think though it was good to express myself at a young age.
