Super Sidewalk Paint

We checked a book out from the library called The Ultimate Book of Kid Concoctions and it is full of easy "concoctions" for the kids to make. Today, we made super sidewalk paint, and the kids loved it. There are only 3 ingredients: cornstarch, water, and food coloring. It makes kind of a soupy liquid, and when you paint it on the sidewalk, it dries just like chalk. And after a while, the colors get even more vibrant. I'll put the recipe at the end in case you want to try it!

2. Add food coloring and stir.

3. Repeat this process to create different colors of Super Sidewalk Paint. (Can easily be washed away with water.)
