Messes Are Fun: Repeat After ME

Family Gathering 2018

Corn Starch

The question was “when are we going to paint with the corn starch?”

Now, I had not really thought of the sidewalk paint as “corn starch” but the previous year, the kids had had as much fun scraping the paint from the driveway as they had had fun putting it there in the first place. And, it is true that sidewalk paint is 1 part corn starch to 1 part water with some food coloring thrown in.

Grandmothers with weak hearts should not look at these photographs. The saving grace of sidewalk paint is that it washes right off with the hose as do the children.

The mess doesn’t matter.

(repeat five times while looking for the hose nozzle)

Are these happy children?
