New Favorite Art :)


We have found a new favorite past time.  I have always always always loved drawing on the sidewalk.  I really hope that Rylee will pick up on that love for art too.  While surfing through some fellow blogs I found a great recipe to make sidewalk paint.


Of course, now I can’t remember where I found the recipe, but it’s out there all over the web.  It is so simple and so much fun.


Basically you put in equal parts of corn starch and water and mix it up!  That’s it.  Add some food coloring and you have bright fun sidewalk paint.  The first batch I made was fairly goopy – or ooblecky! So the second time I made it, we added a little more water – It was perfect.  Wonderful chalky colors appeared when the stuff dried.


I was worried about the paint staining Rylee’s clothes so I did put her in some old play clothes for the activity.  She absolutely loved it.


And so does her mommy!
