Chalk Paint

Having fun in the sun with chalk paint.

So simple to make, just cornstarch, food coloring and water.

Equal parts of cornstarch and water make the paint.

We placed 2 Tablespoons cornstarch into each cup of  an old muffin tin.

Next place 2 Tablespoons water into each one of the four muffin  cups.

We added 4 drops of food coloring for each color into the individual cups. (The back two have been mixed, the front two have not been mixed)

Paint away!

We used foam brushes for painting. They soaked up quite a bit of cornstarch and after about 30 minutes we rinsed them out and then continued painting.

Make Oobleck for another fun cornstarch activity.

Want to make sidewalk chalk? Try this egg shaped chalk.  If you don’t want it egg shaped, pour the mixture into empty toilet paper rolls. Once the mixture is dry peel the paper roll away from the chalk.
