There was a 'pin' for sidewalk paint and I had to try it. Instead of letting my 3.5 year old use a paintbrush, I had her search for items outside that could be used to paint. I honestly think she had more fun seeking out these items than the actual painting herself. We had a lot of fun with this 'pin' and it turned into a long activity from searching for items to painting. Perfect for a warm weather activity.
1. In individual cups add 1/4 cup of warm water to 1/4 cup of cornstarch. If making one large batch it would be 1 cup of water to 1 cup of cornstarch.
2. Mix until the mixture is smooth.
3. Add 1-2 drops of food coloring to each mixture and stir. I didn't use anymore than 2 drops for fear it would stain our driveway which it didn't.
Note: The mixture will separate quickly so you may need to stir occasionally.
4. Get ready to find natures paintbrushes and paint!
