DIY Crafts: Washable Sidewalk Paint Directions:

  1. Combine water and cornstarch. (its easiest if you put it in something with a lid and can just shake it up)
  2. Divide evenly into containers. A muffin pan is great for this or any other jar that you have.
  3. Add a few drops of food coloring. Do not add too much. Our sidewalk is light in color and seemed a bit harder to rinse off.
  4. Enjoy!

My boys were thrilled when I told them we would be painting outside. Luckily we had a few of the really cheap paint brushes left over from other projects, but you can also use those paint sponges too.

Not only is this washable so it is easy to clean up your kids and their clothes, but you can just rinse it away with the hose. I love DIY crafts that have EASY clean-up! My kids loved being able to paint outside without having to worry about getting anywhere they aren’t normally allowed to.

  1. Does the paint wash away easily after it’s been dried on for a couple of days, or do you have to rinse it off right away for it to come off easily? Thanks =)

  2. I’m looking for a way to make bloody foot prints on my sidewalk for Halloween that can be easily washed off, hopefully this recipe works!

  3. I work with underprivileged kids through a school system. This is a great low-cost way for us to have some outside fun! My kids loved making the paint and using it as part of a Steam project.
