almost free.

We made sidewalk paint. It was free for me because I had the stuff.
If you don't have it already it will be a cheap activity. :)
You need:
1/4 cornstarch
1/4 water
food coloring
Mix them all together. Adding as much color as you are brave.
They look especially fun in my favorite bowls.
A tip for you...don't use those foam brushes. Next time we will use bristle brushes.
These photos make me smile.
So colorful and happy.
Moses enjoyed it.
He was thrilled to paint...and on the sidewalk at that. :)
It was almost quiet for a bit.
If not least pretty.
I'm running out of captions for these photos.
You should try it...and be ALL washed away with the hose.

Today I am thankful husband, my toddler(or is he a pre-schooler?), my baby, my business, my husbands great job, my lovely home and so much more. :)
What are you thankful for?

This is a great idea! I do have the supplies at home and a 2 year old. Perfect. May I post a link to your blog post on my edible crafts column? I know one would probably not enjoy eating sidewalk paint, but I often post on recipe-like crafts for kid as well. (My column is at Thank you for sharing! (And I found you through inspireco)
