Puffy Sidewalk Paint

This is an activity I’ve been wanting to try for ages, so hopefully someone will try it with us!! Puffy Sidewalk Paint!

This activity is from ‘Mud Mates’ (www.mudmates.co.nz) so I definitely can’t take any credit! You can make it any colour you like or a whole range of colours!

1 cup flour
1 cup water
1 tablespoon dishwashing liquid (to help make clean up easier)
1 piece of sidewalk chalk (or multiple smaller ends)
Plastic squeeze bottles (or you could try in a jar or egg carton with a paintbrush or stick)

Mix flour and water. Add dishwashing liquid. Whisk until lumps are gone. Grate chalk on finest grater setting. Mix well to combine colour. Pour paint into the bottle.
Note: this must be used within a day. Don’t leave paint inside the squeeze bottles overnight or the pressure from the mixture might cause the tops to pop off. If you have a beautiful outdoor area, you might want to try it in an inconspicuous place first, or maybe the kids could use it to paint stones or rocks.... and maybe use them as pretend Easter Eggs and keep them in a pretty bowl on the table. Boom!! We are definitely doing that!!

Have fun!
