Sidewalk Paint

Yesterday, I was looking for a new project or activity to do with my kids and came across this idea. With it being summer, we love spending our days outside in the sun. I whipped this up in the afternoon and it only took a few minutes. The kids had a great time painting the driveway and as the paint dried, it became more vibrant in color. When it was time to clean up, it came right off with water and I just used a wet paper towel to get the kids clean. Definitely try this, it is an inexpensive activity to do with the kids!! 🙂


1 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup water
Food coloring
Paint Brushes (I used sponge brushes)


In a bowl, mix together the cornstarch and water. Once mixed, pour into small containers (if using different colors). Add a few drops of food coloring, depending on desired color, and mix well. Use a paint brush, sponge, etc and enjoy painting. *To clean, just hose off the driveway or sidewalk : )
