Yesterday was “art day” so we gave this a try. I was looking for a new art activity but I didn’t want to have to buy anything. I came across this project on the Crafty Crow website and knew I had everything in my pantry so it was perfect!
~Mix equal parts cornstarch and water (I like the consistency better when there was a little more cornstarch than water).
~Add food coloring of your choice. We made several different colors. :)
~Mix everything together really well until the cornstarch is completely combined. I love how bright the colors are.
~Start painting. We used the driveway as our canvas. They also suggested painting on foil and we gave that a try too.
~And, of course, it is extra fun if you do it in your pajamas! :)
Overall a fun project and one that all my kids ages 2.5 – 9 yrs enjoyed. This paint is washable and I just used the hose to wash our driveway. It all came off…except for the blue. ;) I went a little crazy when I was making the blue paint and added quite a bit of food dye. I sprayed some bleach cleaner on those spots in the driveway and it took care of it but I would advise going easy on the blue food coloring. :) Or if you don’t want to have to go easy on the food coloring just paint on the foil. I love the way the colors dried on the foil.
It was fun and something we will definitely do again…
