Sidewalk paint

I saw a recipe for sidewalk paint a long time ago and finally tried it last week. It is simple to make and it dries looking much like sidewalk chalk. It rinses off easily with the hose, or just wait for it to rain. I added food coloring to mine, but it left shadows when I rinsed it off, so I would recommend leaving it white.

Sidewalk Paint

1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup water

Mix well and apply to sidewalk with paintbrush.


  1. Very cool, my kids would love to make this. Good project for the weekend!

  2. Thanks for sharing! My kids are finally starting to run out of sidewalk chalk, so we may want to use this recipe this summer.

  3. How cool! I might have to make this with my boyfriend one weekend.

  4. We'll have to try this one.

  5. Well now, how nifty is this!! We will most definitely be trying this out over the summer☺ thanks for sharing!
