Summer Fun

Here is the EASIEST summer activity to do with your kids...are you ready?
Not just any old chalk though- homemade chalk in whatever colors you want, however bright you want, and you paint it instead of draw with it. Chalk paint, its a good thing (channeling Martha).
It dries looking just like regular old chalk, just brighter.

Here's how you do it:
Step 1: Mix equal parts water and corn starch.
Step 2: Add food coloring to desired color.
Step 3: Go outside and paint :)

Send me pics of your chalk paintings :)


  1. What a cute idea! and it washes off fine? Once my daughter stops putting everything in her mouth we will try this - however, even if she did - it's non toxic! :)

  2. It washes off great- mine was completely gone after it rained, washes off hands super easy too.
