Maybe my favorite discovery this year 🤩. First of all, a HUGE shoutout to my friend Kim The Best Ideas for Kids . She made DIY sidewalk chalk paint that got me jumping with excitement! She colors hers a little bit differently so make sure to click on over to her page and check it out ❤️.
❣️That being said, how freaking cool is this? Made with taste safe items and all!! Can you feel my excitement? 😂. The colors dry really vibrant. My girls have been having the best time with this 🤗.
-2 tbsp corn starch
-4 tbsp water
-Food coloring (a little goes a long way)
1️⃣ add the cornstarch, water and food coloring to a small bowl or cupcake pan and mix well.
2️⃣Paint with it 🤩. Seriously so easy and simple ❤️ #mothercould
