It really is so simple, you will want to grab a muffin pan or a few small bowls. The muffin pan works perfectly as you can make many colours!!


You’ll need:
Food dye 
Dish soap (optional, add a few drops to each colour, it can help with clean up but isn’t essential!)

For each colour you will want to add equal parts cornflour and water.

Add drops of food dye for colour and stir until all combined.

It will look runny but trust me, as it dries it looks just like chalk!

And you’re done! Take it outside with some paint brushes and have lots of fun painting the driveway or sidewalk!
