DIY Footpath Paint

Kids going stir crazy inside the house? Send them out to decorate the footpath with this great footpath chalk paint from The Idea Room

1/4 cup of cold water
1/4 cup of cornstarch
A few drops of food coloring
Plastic bowl
Paint brushes
1. Mix 1/4 cup of cornstarch into 1/4 cup of cold water 
(or equal parts of each if you wish to make more or less).
2. Add a small amount of food coloring to give it a bit of color 
(add too much and the footpath will hold a slight stain)
3. Use cheap, small paint brushes rather than foam brushes. 

4. Have fun, get creative and build on your child's language but having them describe what they are paining or by telling stories about what you or your child are painting.

Keep calm 
and paint on 

love Lauren
