I love encouraging outdoor play, but sometimes it can be hard to keep things fresh.
And while making art with chalk is a super inexpensive, easy idea, it’s nice to switch it up. M also gets annoyed when his hands get too dirty, as they do with traditional sidewalk chalk.
Package this sidewalk paint into plastic squirt bottles and you have hours of endless fun!
When you’re done, just hose it down and start fresh!
This sidewalk paint foams up, making it super cool for little kids. It’s NOT washable, so make sure you are wearing junk clothing. But that just makes it more fun!
If you want to be sure it’s washable, you can try coloring it with washable paint – just don’t use a blender that you use for food too if that’s the case!
The blender is used to help get it nice and foamy – you can dedicate a cheap one for crafting and kids activities, use a blender bottle, or just shake it up really hard.
However you do it, it’s going to be lots of fun!!
