summer fun {sidewalk paint}

We have lots of long, lazy, HOT, days to fill.  One day we tried sidewalk chalk “paint”.  The google gave me the recipe  I think it was just cornstarch and water.  And food coloring, of course.  And these three were VERY specific about which colors they wanted.  (notice Wyatt’s brown….)

We started with a giant, and blank, canvas. And quickly got to work.

Wyatt was painting a volcano, a lake, a road and some trees. (the same things he always paints)

Paint was spilled.  Dreams were dashed and these two were a tad bit disappointed with the outcome.

They tried to make the best of it and painted a rainbow stream.  And it was looking very pretty and colorful.  But then a sudden rain shower appeared and washed all their art away.  Oops!  Next time I will watch the weather radar a little better.

Hopefully we will get another chance to try this again….with better results.
