sidewalk paint

this is another pinterest favorite…
it’s super easy and all the supplies are found right in your cupboard…
i just fill up the cups about halfway with water…
i add about 1/3ish cup of corn starch…i just dump it in…

and stir it up…it will look like milk…

then you get to add some color (food coloring) i add about 4 drops….

add different shades (you don’t have to add a color and use it as white)

We let it sit while we finished our lunch…and the corn starch settles..you just need to take a spoon and stir it up and it will dissolve again!

then you PAINT!

i’ve seen some on pinterest that used a muffin tin…so if you have kids that don’t share or want a variety of colors than that would be a great alternative to cups…

the mess after we were done….

I┬ádid notice that after the paint was in the sun all day it all pretty much turned white…so you might want to add more food coloring…

and I also have heard that if you have alot of food coloring it might slightly stain your concrete…..

so pick your poison! how to make sidewalk paint
