Sidewalk Paint

One of the best things we did this summer – we made our own sidewalk paint.
 SUPPLIES: ¼ cup cornstarch ¼ cup cold water 6 to 8 drops of food coloring DIRECTIONS: 1. Put cornstarch in a small plastic bowl and gradually stir in the cold water. 2. Add your desired food coloring and stir. 3. If the paint still feels too dry, just add a little more water until you get the consistency you prefer. 4. Repeat the process to create different colors. This sidewalk paint washes off very easily and will not harm surfaces or plants … cornstarch is all natural and biodegradable.

  1. thanks for sharing. we’ll have to try this

  2. The only problem with living in the country.. no sidewalks, no blacktop.. :(

  3. Those colors look so nice against the blacktop! We have a blacktop driveway too – it would look wonderful! Thanks for sharing the recipe :) Kind of like our Window Paint, except without the soap!


  4. So we just made sidewalk paint yesterday! Forgot all about this post (I’ll go back and link to you) — I loved how it looked against the blacktop! So bright! We added baking soda to our paint and then sprayed it with vinegar!

  5. Hey hey :) I included this in this week’s It’s Playtime post because I’m featuring Big Art :) Love it (as you already know!!)
