DIY Chalk Paint

Need something new for the children to do? Chalk paint is a fast, easy and cheap solution! Let them get messy outdoors, and the rain/hose pipe will take care of the clean up!


To make chalk paint, simply do the following:

  • Mix together equal parts of cornstarch and baking soda and stir

  • Add some warm water until you reach the consistency you are looking for

  • Divide and conquer!

  • Add food dyes and give a good mix

  • Let the art begin!

For added fun in the clean up, put some vinegar in a squeezy bottle and squirt over the paintings. Things will get a little fizzy!


*NOTE: you may wish to test a small section of your patio with the paint to ensure no staining will ensue*
