Chalk Paint

It's school holidays, Phil is back at work and I have to keep Riley entertained for another 4 weeks ....

I was browsing Pinterest the other day looking for inspiration when I came across this idea here for sidewalk chalk paint.

The paint is so easy to mix up and uses just a couple of simple ingredients. Riley loved watching how it changed colour when I mixed in the food colouring.

The paint dries quickly and has a cool chalky effect. It kept Riley busy for quite some time and I ended up mixing up 3 batches before he was done - I can see myself going through a lot of cornflour these school holidays!

The clean up was just as much fun and a great way to cool off after all that creativity.
