  • 2 cups Cornstarch
  • 2 cups water
  • Food coloring
  • 8 small cups
  • Paintbrushes


In a mixing bowl, combine the water and cornstarch and stir until the cornstarch dissolves and it is smooth. It will be kind of runny. Divide the mixture evenly into the small plastic cups. Use the food coloring to make a different color paint in each cup.

Use paintbrushes to paint picture on the sidewalk or driveway outside. It will dry quickly and wash off easily with rain or the hose.
