Method

  • Then, once the kids were done the fun began again when they got to wash it all off!

Washing the Car

  • Once kids are through painting the car have them wash the car as you normally would.  
  • That's it!  All the mess will wash straight away!

Resources
  • Any variety of washable sidewalk chalk paint will work great for this activity.
  • We have used chalk paint from the Target dollar spot, Walmart, Five Below, and Amazon.
  • Our favorite chalk paint can be found in a variety of colors on Amazon here.
  • Do NOT use other types of paint!  We have tried this activity with washable tempera paint, and it washed right off of the car but permanently stained the sidewalk.
