DIY Sidewalk Chalk Paint
Spring is finally, finally really and truly here, WhyNotters! To celebrate, here is a very springy, nigh on summery Wactivity to decorate your doorsteps and delight your inner DIY-er.
What you need:
~ Something to paint with
~ Something to mix in
Optional: Food coloring
& of course, one wacky activity doer!
What to do:
~ Mix cornstarch and water in your “something to mix in” – it’s about equal parts but I suggest going light on the water, you can always add more. Mix and add – more water if it’s too thick, more cornstarch if it’s too thin, until you get to a paint-like consistency (or until you are just too excited to wait to paint, whichever comes first).
~ If you want, add in some food coloring. For those of you working on color theory, this is a nice time to see what happens when you mix red and yellow, etc. The food coloring is totally optional though, painting with white is cool and interesting too.
The inspiration for this is on the Wactivity Pinterest page!
