Our Day

It has been a busy week for me and the Hubbs, so we decided to set this day aside for the girls.  He's at work today, but the girls have off from school so we're spending the day doing fun stuff.  Typically, we'd watch a movie, do our nails and hair... you know, girlie stuff.  But the weather is so nice that we decided to do an outdoor craft - sidewalk paint!  This is all over pinterest and seemed easy enough, so we set out to make some of our own.  

Here's what you'll need: 
1 c. Cornstarch
1 c. Water
Food coloring 
Containers (some people use muffin tins.  I used Easter egg coloring cups)

Mix the water and cornstarch together. (I used my stick blender.  It was much faster.)
Pour mixture into your cup of choice
Add food coloring (as many drops until you like the color)

We ended using 5 cups of cornstarch and 5 cups of water and then divided them into 1/2 cup portions.  

The prep was easy and clean up was surprisingly fast.  It's a great project for kids to help with.  If you're a homeschooling mom, you could use this for a math, art, or science. 

After our painting project, it was time to move onto making these!  We just pulled them out of the oven and they look delicious!  

When Hubby gets home, we're going to have pizza and watch this.  


Have you heard of this?  Do you have a Marcus Theater in your area?  If so, take advantage of the $2 movies!  Spy Kids 4 is playing tomorrow.  We're going to see it.  


Do you have any exciting plans this weekend?

  1. I love sidewalk chalk paint. I couldn't believe how bright it dried. I'll have to make a new batch when the weather decides what it's going to do. After the house goes on the market, it'll keep us OUTSIDE so we won't mess up the inside :)
