I found this kid-friendly project on Pinterest a while back and waited for a lazy day when the rain would likely come soon thereafter to give it a go.   (The original source was this blog.)

With Tropical Storm Beryl headed our way, we decided to try it out.

Turtle and I whipped a batch of homemade chalk paint.

The ingredients:

  • Cornstarch
  • Water
  • Food coloring

I did not follow the Pinterest recipe.  It was way to soupy.  I kept adding cornstarch well past the suggested amount until each cup holder was thick.

Then we added food coloring.

Then, Turtle and I painted the front sidewalk.  As the paint dried,  it lightened up into a rainbow of pastels.

Cheap.

Easy.

No clean up thanks to Beryl.

Pinterest perfection.

Thanks for reading.
