When I saw this idea for liquid chalk at Domestic Charm I just couldn’t wait to try it out! We love playing with chalk over here. We made this months ago and really enjoyed it. We put it in a muffin pan and had multiple colors. We used paint brushes and painted the drive way. I looked forward to doing it again and it seems the time is now! This week I saw a new idea for using liquid chalk at Inner Child Fun and thought we would try it this way. Who doesn’t want to squirt liquid chalk around?
What you need:
Equal parts cornstarch to water, food coloring and bottles that will squirt.(I had a baby wash bottle, a tummy yummy bottle, and a dish soap bottle.) I just made my liquid chalk the way we made it the first time. (from the first blog listed) The second blog made it another way but same ingredients.
What to do:
mix cornstarch and water together then add food coloring. I think one bottle I used 1 1/2 cups of both and the other two bottles I used 1 cup of each. Fill up bottles with mix. Then add food coloring to bottles and mix. Last go have some fun!!!!
My youngest son was taking a nap and my oldest here in the photo was dying to go out and play. It was a cloudy day here in GA, so we added some color to it with liquid chalk!
I don’t usually add this many photos of the same activity but they all show how much fun he was having.
He was covered by the end. Mommy was a little messy too. But it was fun watching him play. His clothes came clean after washing. I did wash them as soon as we came in.
His masterpiece! I only wished I had more bottles so he could have kept going. Maybe next time.
