"Inspired by a cool sidewalk paint kit we saw selling for $15, we came up with our own recipe using just a couple of common kitchen ingredients that cost about $1," says Danita Thomas. "This concoction comes in handy when the kids are a little restless and start asking, 'What can we do now?' They've used their homemade paints to design driveway murals, lay out roads for their bikes and toy cars, and even decorate the walkways for holidays."

Check out more fun ideas from John and Danita Thomas, the Kid Concoctions Couple.
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • Food coloring
  • Paintbrush
  1. In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and cold water. Stir in as many drops of food coloring as you need to get your desired color. Repeat this process for each paint color. Use a paintbrush to make fun designs on the sidewalk or driveway. To wash the paint off, simply spray the area with water.

    TIP: Super Sidewalk Paint isn't just for sidewalks. Put it in spray bottles and use it to color sand castles and snow sculptures.

    Since this is now "craft week" :) I thought this recipe would be a good one to post! A friend showed me this fabulous recipe last week! We LOVE it! It's super fun, not crazy messy and costs about nothing to make
I'll be enoying this craft with my kiddos in the morning,
