SIdewalk Painting

We are in the midst of a cool down.

Temperatures are in the low 90's.  Yee- haw!

So taking advantage of the cooler temperatures and our shaded backyard, I made some sidewalk paint and let the kids get creative and messy on the patio.

Household items to make paint + paint brushes = an hour of laughs, smiles, and spending time together.

1/4 c cornstartch
1/4 c water
food coloring
* tip: the only food coloring i had was the wilton food coloring i use for decorating cookies/cakes.  let's just say our patio looks like a died easter egg right now. i am hoping it wears away.  use regular food coloring. i think your sidewalks/driveways/patios will fair better. and it won't stress your husband out.

i will just have to ship my kids to your house if they want to have that kind of messy fun.

congratulations on your imperfect win.
