To make your own sidewalk chalk paint you will need: 2 tbsp cornstarch, 3 tbsp water, and 10 drops of food coloring (per color). Muffin tins are the perfect size for creating a rainbow palette of paint, and they also minimize the risk of spilling. Gently mix the cornstarch into the water until it dissolves, and then add food coloring. The colors should be bold and saturated as they will dry lighter on the sidewalk.
Give the kids a variety of paintbrushes and watch them show off their artistic side!
