Beat Summer Boredom: DIY Sidewalk Paint

DIY Sidewalkpaint @ threecorneredhug.wordpress.comThis is something we’ve done every summer for the last several years. Kids of all ages love it, and children come from all over to join in–even those that one might think would be “too old”.

Sidewalk Paint @ threecorneredhug.wordpress.comIt’s a pretty simple recipe. You can just put a little bit of flour, or even cornstarch into a disposable cup or storage container and add a little bit of water at a time until you get a thick consistency, almost like gloopy pancake batter.

Next, you add, some food coloring until it looks nice and vivid. Red tends to require more, and I used a really concentrated dye this time. DIY sidewalk paint @ threecorneredhug.wordpress.com

I know the biggest question here is, “Will it wash off“? The answer is yes, it will wash off of your sidewalk, but it may not wash off of your kids’ clothing. Make sure they dress accordingly 🙂
