Sidewalk Paint

I've been trying to find some fun, inexpensive activities to do with Taylor on these fantastic, sunny days before the weather gets so hot that we end up hibernating again. While scanning Pinterest I found a simple recipe for homemade sidewalk paint and I just had to try it.

Basically all you do is mix water with cornstarch to make a watery white mixture. Then you divide the "paint" into small plastic containers or a muffin tin and dye each one using basic food coloring. Break out the foam brushes and go to town!

Taylor had lots of fun, and Mommy did too! It was neat to draw shapes with sidewalk chalk and then fill them in with paint. We'll definitely be doing this again.
