Sometimes food comes in handy in places other than the kitchen and dinner table...like on the driveway! We mixed up some sidewalk water chalks and the Pickles had a blast! Sometimes feeding Pickles involves fueling and feeding their creativity!
Sidewalk Water Chalks
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup water
a squirt (4-8 drops) of food coloring
Mix ingredients in a cup and paint on the driveway and sidewalk with paintbrushes. Or you can cut a sponge into strips for paintbrushes like we did. The only downfall to the sponge method is that your fingers may turn a funny mix of colors as the colors work their way up to your hands!
**We did find that with the amount of food coloring that we used, it took a couple washings to get the color off of our lighter colored sidewalks. Using a little less food coloring should remedy this situation. We were a little eager and therefore a bit generous with our color!
