Sidewalk Fun

We had an awesome playgroup last week! It was sidewalk chalk painting!  My girls absolutely loved it.  It throws a little more pizzazz into that regular sidewalk chalk. Thanks Mely! 

oooo the excitement!

Wanna make some too?
Recipe:
cornstarch
food coloring
water
Instructions: dump cornstarch into a bowl, add coloring and stir in a few tablespoons of water. Mix until desired consistency (it's supposed to be pretty runny). 
  
Now that doesn't look too hard does it? Simplicity is a beautiful thing. We'll definitely be doing it again soon.

So the food coloring didn't stain clothes?! That's awesome! I was hoping you would say how you made it. What a fun idea!
