Sidewalk Chalk Paint

I am participating in Becky's Handmade Easter Basket Swap over at Belle + Bee.  We were all supposed to make a little something handmade for the group to put in our kids' Easter Baskets.  There were eleven kids in the swap, so it was just supposed to be something little.  I finally decided to go with a pack of sidewalk chalk paint.


Here is the link to the printable, if you would like to make some of your own.

All you need is cornstarch and powder tempera paint.  I mixed them together in a bowl, about twice as much cornstarch as paint powder,  and then packaged them in souffle cups I bought on ebay


Not too messy, as long as you do not introduce moisture to the set up!



I wrapped them up with a chubby paintbrush in a cello bag.  Hope everyone enjoys & I hope you make some sidewalk chalk paint.  It really is fun to use!

I'm linking up to Dear Lillie today:

  2. So cute Courtney! Does the paint wash right out of clothes and off the sidewalk?

  5. Thanks for sharing this great kid's idea. I think I will be a big hit with my grand daughter when I go to visit and we make and use your sidewalk paint. I saw your post over at "Dear Lillie" Easter party.
