The kids will love this! Easier then drawing with chalk, this paint can be made thin or thicker depending on how rich you want your colours. Use more water and larger brushes for more ease of painting. A great, inexpensive outdoor activity for the kids!

Fleischmann's®
 
 
Ingredients
 
3 cups Fleischmann's® Corn Starch
2-4 dashes food colouring, various colours
3 cups water, use more or less depending on desired consistency
 
Instructions
 

This recipe can be made with smaller amounts too, using equal parts of corn starch and water. Using a large mixing bowl, add the water to the cornstarch and mix well until clumps are gone. Divide equal amounts into your separate bowls, add a few drops of food colouring to each bowl to create your colours, mixing well.

While painting you’ll want to keep your colours looking vibrant, use your paint brush to give the paint a stir as the corn starch will settle on the bottom.

The colours will look more brilliant as the paint dries. Works great on all types of sidewalks and driveways. Try painting some garden rocks too. Clean-up is a breeze, washes away easily with water, or let the rain take care of it. Non-toxic and safe for the gardens, it will actually help the soil retain moisture better!

Storage: can be stored in jars with tight lids for a few days, shake well when ready to use again
