RoseArt Sidewalk Chalk Paint Review

Only a couple more weeks of school for the kids in Iowa so mom's I hope you have some summer plans lined up.   One thing I do often with my children is sidewalk chalk.   We have played many games with sidewalk chalk including: 

Thank-you RoseArt for sending me the two pack sample to conduct my review.   I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.   

The two pack we received retails for $7.99.   My kids surprised me and took turns sharing both colors amazingly well.   Each paint comes with one paint brush so if you have more kids you might want to pick up a few extra paint brushes.   

We used both colors up in one sitting.   It was  a lot of painting but we did use it all.   I am not sure how well the paint would last if stored for future use.   The paint can did have a cover so that would be something to check out.   

My children both enjoyed painting since it was different then normal chalk.  The paintbrushes did not last as long though which is my only negative comment.   The paint brush fell apart which made it more challenging to paint.   You will want to paint on a very flat surface outside with little to know rocks because that will ruin the paint brush.   So like mentioned before grabbing a few extra paint brushes would be helpful.

The colors are much more vibrant then normal chalk play.   We have had one rainfall so far and the chalk did not completely go away yet.   I'm not worried I know it will come off but it's nice to know that this art might stick around a little longer.    

As school years end make sure you pick up some sidewalk chalk for those moments when your children say, "I'm bored!"  

Update 5/13/14
We have had 2 rain storms come through and you can still see the orange and blue chalk paint.  It has faded some but still a lot left and it is making me nervous!

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

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
