Homemade Sidewalk Chalk Paint

We love using homemade sidewalk chalk paint to draw and write outside!  We use a recipe that my friend passed along to us!

The recipes we used is equal parts of corn starch and water. I used 2 tablespoons of each for these little containers.  Then I added gel food coloring until it was the color I wanted.  Corn starch is a craft staple in our house.  I'm beginning to think it's magic.

I didn't take any pictures of the paint when it dries, but it's super vibrant and opaque.  It really shows up well. This might be our new favorite summer craft activity.
