Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it:


Supplies:

1 tsp. washable tempura paint

1 cup of hot water

1/2 cup of cornstarch

squirt of dishwashing liquid

1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store

1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps.
2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well.
3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well.
4.  Go have fun!!!  

This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :) 
Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!


She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom."

She is like her daddy, when he is working hard he has his tongue out of his mouth too.  LOL

She had it all over herself here!  LOL

When it is dry this is what it looks like.  :) 
I also learned an important mommy lesson during this fun project.  Since my daughter was enjoying it so much I told her she could keep playing while I made dinner.  I came back outside to see her work and to my surprise she went around every where spraying!  OOOPS!  She sprayed the neighbors door, light post, little bird figurine, tree, electrical boxes, siding on the house, rocks, patio furniture, car door, and even the couch since the door was open with only the screen shut.  LOL it was so funny my hubby and I had fun cleaning everything...with her help of course.  So make sure you keep an eye on your kids. LOL!!!  Good thing it is all washable and easy to clean up.  :)
