Last Monday I decided to try out one of my many DIY pins on my Pinterest boards. It sounded easy and I thought MK would love trying it out. The DIY pin was sidewalk chalk paint. It also worked out perfectly because I already had all "ingredients" on hand.The directions called for one cup of cornstarch and one cup of water. Easy enough.
Then I poured a little of the concoction in a muffin tin. I had enough "stuff" to fill six muffin slots. I then added a few drops of food coloring, stirred and presto - Sidewalk Chalk Paint.
MK and I took it outside and got busy making our masterpieces.
It was funny because MK wasn't quite sure what to do at first. But, with a little coaching, she was well on her way.
It was fun, super easy to make and clean up and kept MK occupied for almost an hour.
When I make it next time I will 1) make the colors much richer and 2) use the paint immediately after making. I made the paint and then got busy with something and by the time I finally took MK out to use it the cornstarch had fallen to the bottom of the muffin tin and the paint was way too watery.
Oh, and I also make sure my muffin tins are clean. Apparently I had left a little cupcake residual. Oops.
Overall, it was a great DIY project and one I will definitely do again.
