I have been wanting to try making homemade sidewalk chalk paint for a long time. I finally got over the fear of it not coming off of the cement and made a batch. Now all I can say is “why did it take me so long to try this?” The girls (and myself) absolutely loved painting with this paint. The colors were so vibrant and they covered the concrete so much easier than regular chalk.
Juliette mixed hers together pretty quickly. I loved that she used two brushes at a time to paint with!
We will definitely be trying this again and just so you know it did leave behind a little bit of color after I hosed the patio down, but after a few days you couldn’t even see it anymore.
Here is the recipe we used:
Sidewalk Chalk Paint
Mix together equal parts Corn Starch and water then add food coloring to get to the desired shade of each color.
When I made it for each color I used 2 Tbsp of cornstarch and 2 Tbsp water with about 4 drops of food coloring. The next time we do this I will need to make more, they could have painted for much longer if we didn’t run out of he paint. I will probably double is for each color.
