Inspired by this blog, Bear and I made some sidewalk paint. We used equal parts of cornstarch and water and added a few drops of tempera paint. We first made a batch of blue and then, once she’d used that up in the blink of an eye, we made purple by mixing a drop of red and a drop of blue paint into the cornstarch and water. Bear loved watching the paint “magically” turn purple as she stirred. I poured the sidewalk paint into a squirt container and Bear had fun making trails as she walked on our patio. I had fun making faces for Bear, as you can see from the picture. Definitely a fun and quick-to-prepare activity. Bear would have kept making more paint all day, but my supply of cornstarch was limited.
