Homemade Sidewalk Paint: Super-Simple Fun for the Summer Blahs (VIDEO)

by Kat Bouska

sidewalk chalk DIY crafts

While hunting for fun and inexpensive crafts on Pinterest, I noticed a ton of people pinning do-it-yourself sidewalk paint. Is that even possible? Sidewalk paint is something I've never heard of before, but painting the sidewalks would be right up my kids' alley so I decided to give it a try.

The recipe for sidewalk paint could not be easier:

  • 1 part cornstarch
  • 1 part water
  • Drops of food coloring or washable paint.

That's it!

But is it too good to be true?

Watch this video as I make sidewalk paint for my kids and even compare it to store bought sidewalk paint!:
