How to Make DIY Sidewalk Chalk Paint

I owe this post to my sweet neighbors. They were playing on their sidewalk last week (as you can see… Day 55 of our summer photo journaling) with DIY sidewalk chalk paint. It looked like so much fun so of course I had to run home and make some for my boys.

DIY Sidewalk Chalk Paint

Here’s how you can make a batch of easy DIY chalk paint for your kiddos (and YES, it washes right away with a good rain or the hose!). You’ll need:

  • Cornstarch
  • Food coloring
  • Water
  • Plastic cups and paint brushes

And the easy steps:

  1. Make a batch of paint (1:1 ratio of cornstarch to water). It will be thick, so if you prefer watery paint, just add more water to your mixture.
  2. Separate your paint into plastic cups
  3. Add food coloring
  4. Mix
  5. Paint
