Now that triple-digit temperatures are behind us, Juniper, Owen, and I have been spending many more hours outdoors (though all those mosquitoes are still hanging around - it seems we three are delicious). These photos are from our adventures with liquid sidewalk chalk one morning while Owen napped. Our recipe is from this post by Domestic Charm. It's simply one cup of water and one cup of cornstarch, divided and dyed with food coloring. Juni loved adding and mixing all the colors in the muffin tin - "we're cooking up colors!" The colors seem a little watery at first, but they dry with a nice, bright, opaque finish.
Juni started off with the paintbrush, but eventually got fingers and hands and feet involved. When she was finished, she emptied the whole tin and we watched all the colors trickle down the driveway. Next time we'll let Owen get his hands in there as well.
