We love to play and explore with sidewalk chalk during the warmer months.
We have come up with all sorts of fun ways to make it, too!  Today, we combined a few kitchen items to make liquid chalk so that we could paint the town!  Read on for the easy tutorial.

Fizzy Chalk Paint Recipe

Materials
Method

  • Mix roughly 1 part corn starch and 1 part baking soda together, using one container for each color of chalk that you wish to make.  
  • We used a muffin tin, which allowed us to easily mix a variety of colors.

  • You could also use cups/bowls.
  • Add a couple drops of food coloring to each container, and then slowly add water and mix until the desired consistency is reached.  
  • The less water you add the thicker the paint will be.  
  • Once mixed head outside with paint brushes and a spray bottle of vinegar, and the fun can begin!
