Chalk Paint


I saw this activity, & thought we'd try it out today & see how it turned out.

It's basically 2TBS of Corn Starch & 2TBS of water plus a couple drops of food coloring.

It ended up being a lot of fun. It looks like regular paint when you put it down, but after it dries it turns into a pretty chalk painting.

that sounds excellent becuase I HATE the sound and feeling of writing with sidewalk chalk... perhaps matt and I will have to 'chalk' someone!

Oh we may have to try this! My kids would love it. Heck I would love it.

That looks like fun! Have you tried to rinse it off yet? Does it come off like chalk?

Ashley said...

That looks really cool!

How does it do coming out of clothes?

Esther Noelle said...

Yes that looks pretty awesome!

Okay, SO LOTS of questions... the paint just dried & then just BRUSHED off my jeans that I was wearing.

Then it has both worn off the sidewalk (like chalk does) and it washes off with water.

I haven't seen a stain anywhere on Syd's clothes & the neighbor little girl spilled it all over herself. Her mom said it came right off.

WOOT! Fun stuff guys!
