Popsicle Sidewalk Chalk

     Today I am going to share with you the perfect outdoor summer activity.


     After  looking at this, from Brittany, at Buttons, Birds, and BS it inspired me to create Sidewalk Popsicle Chalk Paint.  In the past we have painted with chalk paint  and the kids loved it!  I knew they would love this as well and they did!

Sidewalk Popsicle Chalk Paint
You will need:
  • ice cube tray
  • bowls for mixing
  • water
  •  cornstarch
  • stirring utensils
  • food coloring
  • popsicle sticks (Britney also used straws)
  • Liquid measuring cup (or something to pour liquid easily in ice cube tray)
Add 2 Tablespoons of cornstarch in a bowl

Then add 2 Tablespoons of water and stir.

Add a few drops of food coloring and stir.

Pour mixture into liquid measuring cup

Pour liquid into ice cube tray

 Add popsicle sticks.

I froze for 3 hours and then transferred to plate to play outside and have a blast!!





C had fun painting this brick.  I loved that the paint disappeared when I dumped water on it!









C ran and threw a tantrum when we were out of paint.  She was not happy!  


    The popsicle sidewalk chalk cleaned up easy with the garden hose.   I  sprayed water on the concrete to wash the paint off when I watered the garden that night.

    We had a blast painting with Popsicle Sidewalk chalk!  I hope you try it with your kids.  They will love it!

Thanks for stopping by!
