Our weather is so wonderful. It’s March. It’s almost 80. This is Michigan. I’m scared. The trees have taken on a wonderful kelly green hue and the grass is looking less like straw by the minute. And so I wait….wait for the potential frost or snow that may attempt to end it all. I expect that I’ll soon be scurrying around the yard with my husband, covering my hibiscus, hydrangeas, and lilies. I’m a little neurotic about my plants, and I love our yard. And you know, I love our fabulous driveway, too. It was a point I noted when we hadn’t yet bought the house. ”It’s a nice driveway for the kids to ride their bikes up and down.”, I said. And now? Boy, do they ever. Homemade Sidewalk Paint has a way of making our driveway a nifty canvas, too. And whether you’ve got a big driveway or small, this fabulous mixture will bring hours of artistic fun for your little ones. Best of all? It’s totally safe. Lately, that means everything, doesn’t it?
Homemade Sidewalk Paint
1/2 cup Cornstarch
1/2 cup Water
Mix water and cornstarch as well as possible. Nope, nothing’s perfect here.
Divide into 1/4 cup portions. You can use whatever container you have. Ziploc storage containers work just fine for this.
Tint each portion a different color and mix well.
You’re ready to paint.
If you still have some left over, put it into spray bottles and use it for that next snowy snap. It makes great tinted snowballs or snow, if you only have a dusting.
My kids like to make highway lanes with arrows to follow around. Yep, they like to play traffic. Hmmpf, you can bet I’ll remind them of that when they’re moaning and groaning about it someday. ;)
