Chalk Paint

I love Pinterest.  
And not just because I find so many fabulous new ideas, 
but because sometimes I stumble across ideas I already knew about but just forgot.  
This is one of them.

Chalk Paint
Equal parts of cornstarch and water, with food coloring (or liquid water colors) added. 
 I am out of red food coloring, so my colors are pretty boring...

But take it outside, give the kiddos some paint brushes, 
and you can enjoy quite a bit of quiet time while they are busy painting away!

I kind of wish I would have had some bigger paint brushes on hand, 
but they were happy with what they had.
And yes.  You may find that this paint is fun for fingers and toes too!
**PS?  Make sure all food coloring is safely tucked away before assuming your children are quietly having fun.  Otherwise you may be shocked to discover that your 2 year old was having fun...but in a way that dyed his skin green enough that he could be cast in Wicked as Elphaba's son.  Just sayin'. **
