Making sidewalk paint!

The girls and I had a great time today mixing and decorating with our newest joy - homemade sidewalk paint!  Moms?  Dads?  Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, Cousins, Friends, etc etc?  Write this recipe down - so easy and so much fun!!!  Stir together 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup corn starch, and 8 drops food colouring, which ever colour you like, in your paint container - that's it!  If you want white paint, don't add the food colouring.  Did I mention the easy part?  So very very easy!  Take it outside and paint away.  And because it's all natural, it's totally safe for your grass, etc, so when you want to finally clean your driveway, you just take the hose and spray it away - itself an extra fun activity for the kids to do!  Corn starch and water clump so you do have to occasionally stir the mixture up again, just to stop it from globbing to the bottom of the container.  Also, I made up the word 'globbing'.  I like it.  You may feel free to use it in your everyday conversations.  Cheers!
