Paint Day

Harvey loves painting! Its often hard to pull him away, even after he has finished his specific project he asks for paper to paint. So for a little summer fun we thought we would go outside and make a fun mess! Thanks to Pinterest I found 2 great projects for us to do…. Sidewalk Paint and Spray Paint!

Both are super simple….

For the sidewalk Paint simply mix 1/4 cup water with 1/4 cup corn starch. and a drop or 2 of food coloring. Don’t use to much food coloring as it can stain the surface. When the paint dries it will look sidewalk chalk. Clean up is easy just hose it down!

For the Pray paint we mixed a small amount of Acrylic paint with water. (I emptied whatever was left in a few old paint bottles i had and then added about a cup or more of water. to much water can make the paint runny so you may want to test it out a bit. If you don’t want to use acrylic you can do water colors and for that simply mix water and food coloring. Once your paint is mixed and in your spray bottle hang a sheet or a canvas and have a go! I suggest if you are using acrylic hang over dirt or grass area instead of your porch just incase the paint goes astray!
