Sidewalk Paint

I mixed up some sidewalk paint one afternoon this week for my nephew and Eli to mess with. The bright hues were impressive when mixed up, and the colors of the designs the boys made looked so vibrant on the sidewalks after their creations dried. A great recipe from The Ultimate Book of Kid Concotions by John E. Thomas and Danita Pagel -

Super Sidewalk Paint
1/4 C. cornstarch
1/4 C. cold water
6 drops of food coloring (I used McCormick's Neon Colors.)

Mix cornstarch and cold water together in a small plastic bowl. Add food coloring and stir. Repeat this process to create different colors. Brush on with a paintbrush - it easily rinses off the sidewalk with water.
