Painting Fun

Last week I was trying to find fun stuff to do outside with Claire. The weather was a tad cooler and the walking girl begs to go outside all day. I thought she had eaten her fair share of leaves and other dirt so we needed something else to do. I was doing my daily fun on Pinterest and discovered a homemade sidewalk paint that when it drys it looks like chalk! It's edible, non toxic, you know all the stuff kids aren't supposed to have. It is 1/4 cup of cornstarch, 1/4 cup of water, and food coloring. I learned the hard way a little food coloring goes a long way because even a week later poor baby's toenails are still tinted blue. Needless to say she had an absolute blast. She spent more time spilling the "paint" and pretending to brush the driveway. Oh and of course licking the paint brush. The driveway is still a nice rainbow of colors, but one day (hopefully) it will rain and wash our canvas a way for us to start again! Here are some pics from our "artwork".
