DIY Sidewalk Chalk


Here's a quick and easy idea for "bored" kids....DIY sidewalk chalk.


All that you need is cornstarch and water.



I mixed 2 cups of cornstarch with 2 cups of water until I got a thin enough consistency to paint with.
If you don't add enough water, then you'll end up with Oobleck.....


 After I mixed a big bowl of the cornstarch and water, I divided it evenly
and added the food coloring.
My colors are not really bright because I was almost out of food coloring.




 Then, we just grabbed a bunch of brushes and started to decorate the driveway.
It washes off a lot easier than regular sidewalk chalk!



What fun activities have you been doing this summer?

This IS awesome! My kids would of loved that when they were little and I'm thinking I have a couple big ones that would get too some sidewalk art if I made this. Pinning.

It seems like a must-try DIY! You see I am a single mother and also a university student. Currently, writing my dissertation has kept me quite busy and I can not play with my 5-year old son enough. I want to make these chalks with him so I will be getting dissertation assistance help will get me some free time to play with him. Thank you so much for the chalk-making recipe.
