Sidewalk Squirty Chalk
My kids were blown away by this activity. They had a blast creating amazing glow-in-the-dark art all over the pavement, and it glowed so brightly it lit up our whole street! You may be wondering how we made this happen. Well, I just recently discovered that blacklight flashlights exist. Did you know? If not I would take a moment and order one so that you can try this activity and the many other activities that we have on the way using these amazing flashlights.
Ok, now back to the chalk. You won't believe how easy it is to make. Are you ready?
- Squirt bottles
- Corn starch
- Warm water
- Neon paint
- A blacklight flashlight (we used two- one for each child)
Fill the squirt bottles one third of the way with corn starch. Add one tablespoon of neon paint to each bottle, and then fill the bottles with very warm water. Stir the ingredients, and then secure the lids on the bottles and shake them vigorously until all of the ingredients are combined. Then, grab your flashlights and head outside!
Rosie and Jewel were SO EXCITED when they saw how much the squirt chalk glowed in the dark
They had a blast creating amazing, glowing art
Photographing this activity wasn't easy given the low light, but believe me when I tell you this was an awesome playtime!
This is the paint we use in our activities. These are the flashlights that we have. We have lots of other ideas using these flashlights, too! Be sure to follow us on Pinterest so that you don't miss them!
