Much like the zucchini noodles, I wish to heavens I was the person who invented sidewalk paint.
A friend of mine dropped her kiddos off to play last week, and noticed our (my) extensive chalk drawings on the front steps leading up to our house.
She asked me if we ever did sidewalk chalk paint, which I had never even heard of. Thank goodness for friends with kids, right?
Anyway, she told me to google it, but briefly mentioned it was just water, corn starch, and food coloring. So, instead of looking up (what I can only imagine) is a pretty simple recipe, I just messed around until we got it right.
It is a lot easier for Adrienne to paint than draw right now, and I had some fun with it, too. When it was over, we spent about thirty seconds washing it off with the hose, and then thirty minutes playing in the hose water.
Summer, never leave us.
