Sidewalk Squirty Paint - this stuff is so fun it kept my kids playing for a whole afternoon! {Only 3 ingredients!}


Yesterday, we had some super Summer FUN exploring with exploding sidewalk chalk paint bags. Rosie loved it so much she immediately asked to do it again. While I am certain we will do it quite a few more times this Summer, today I wanted to try something a little different.


MAGIC Sidewalk Squirt Paint


As with most kids Rosie and Jewel love squirt bottles. They love squeezing them to make liquid come out so much that old shampoo bottles are pretty much the favorite bath toy around here. While we have tried squirt painting in a variety of ways in the past, I was super excited to arm the girls with a bunch of magic sidewalk chalk filled squirt bottles and give them free rein to paint the town, or in this case, the pavement.


Magic Squirty Chalk Materials (affiliate links provided)


Corn starch


Food coloring


Water


Squirt bottles


Baking soda


Vinegar


You will need one squirt bottle for each color of paint you want to make. Fill each bottle roughly 2/3 full with a corn starch and baking soda mixture. I used roughly the same amount of both ingredients.


Add a few drops of food coloring and fill the bottles the rest of the way with water. Then use a butter knife or similar to stir the ingredients. The mixture is VERY thick at first, but soon all the ingredients melt into a colorful magic paint.


After you have the mixture mixed a bit place the cap on the squeeze bottles and shake them well (Rosie was happy to help with this part) Note- you will also want to fill a couple squirt bottles with vinegar.


Both girls were super excited and jumped right in to start SQUIRT painting

A Few Tips: I purchased six clear squirt bottles from Walmart for a $1 a piece some time ago, and we use them often for play. Any bottles will do though, even old shampoo or condiment bottles. I highly recommend the neon variety of food coloring. It made the chalk paint colors super vibrant!
