I saw this really easy recipe for homemade sidewalk paint at One Perfect Day and decided to make this for the boys. Use equal parts water and cornstarch then color with food coloring.
Make sure not to leave your cornstarch unattended (even with the top screwed on tight) with a two year old in the house. On the bright side, I needed to mop the floor anyway.
The boys loved painting the sidewalk. They painted for a long time.
They even painted themselves. The homemade sidewalk paint cleaned up easily so it was no problem getting the boys or their clothes clean again. My little cornstarch culprit wore the evidence on his shirt.
We will be painting our sidewalks again soon since the boys had such a fun time of it.
