Summer is winding down but that doesn’t mean the fun crafts have to end. This summer I made some homemade chalk paint and my kids loved it! I gave each of the kids some foam board from the dollar store and let them squirt away! I’m sharing how to make your own DIY Chalk Paint and it only takes three ingredients.
This “recipe” is really easy…here you go…
- Cornstarch (or cornflour)
- Washable paint
It is a 1:1 ratio of cornstarch and water but I recommend starting with 1/2 water and add according to your preference. You can make it more like paste with less water or more like paint with 1:1.
I decided to mix up one big batch and then divide evenly into squirt bottles with a funnel.
I didn’t measure the paint but if I had to guess I probably put about 2 tablespoons of paint in each bottle. I really just added until I was happy with the color. Put the top on and shake well.
Once your colors are done you are ready to paint!
I always have foam boards on hand so my son grabbed the black one and my daughter wanted white. You can see they have very different techniques!
The great thing about this paint is that it washes off hands, clothes, and driveways really easily. The best thing about this paint is watching my little loves playing together.
I hope you enjoyed my Easy DIY Chalk Paint Recipe!
