Fizzing Sidewalk Paint Recipe

  • Corn Starch
  • Baking Soda
  • Food Coloring
  • Water
  • Vinegar
  • A Spray Bottle

Mix roughly one part corn starch and two parts baking soda together.   The more baking soda you add the more the paint will FIZZ!  We used a muffin tin so we could create an array of colors.  Add a couple drops of food coloring and then slowly add water, mixing until you have the desired consistency.  The less water you add the thicker the paint will be.  Once mixed  head outside with a spray bottle of vinegar and the fun can begin!

Since Halloween is close Rosie painted witches, goblins, and pumpkins.  Rosie thought the fizzing jack-o-lanterns and goblin faces were just too cool!
