Sunday Funday!

Just a brief post on this beautiful Sunday morning.  A few days ago, I finally went to my Pinterest page and did one of the outdoor summer activities with the kids that I had pinned:  sidewalk paint.  It was super easy to do and they had a lot of fun.  We used foam brushes, but I would suggest a thicker bristle brush instead.  The paint dries like chalk, so our driveway is now a canvas of brightly colored drawings by the kids.  It is supposed to easily wash off with water, but since we've had no rain lately, we'll just leave it!

Sidewalk Paint

Food Coloring

In a muffin tin measure out 1 tablespoon of corn starch for each hole.  Add 6-10 drops of food coloring (the more dye, the brighter the color).  Take outside and add some water.  It will start off thick, but as you stir turn it will turn into a nice, smooth paint.
