Mason was having a hard time coming up with things to do last weekend while Big Brother was away...which tends to start getting him in trouble. When my strong-willed Little Man starts to turn argumentative, that's when I know I had better come up with something for him to do!
The weather forecast called for rain, so I knew this would be a fun project while it lasted, and would quickly wash away, making for a blank canvas again the next day.
Homemade Chalk Paint
2 Tbsp cornstarch
2 Tbsp water
Food coloring (a few drops)
Stir all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. Make a few batches and use different colors to make it more fun! (Double or triple each batch for more than one kiddo, as they'll use it up pretty quickly!)
We found that medium-sized artists paintbrushes worked fine, as did larger trim brush. (The larger brush will soak up the paint more quickly.)
