The fun thing about this diy outdoor chalk paint is that when the kids squirt it to draw with it, it stays puffy. Kids can easily draw or write with this liquid chalk paint and it looks so cool on the sidewalk or driveway!
How to Color DIY Sidewalk Paint
When making homemade sidewalk paint you can use food coloring or washable paint.
It is really simple to make this homemade sidewalk chalk in any color that you want it to be! So you can let the kids be creative in making the colors they want to have.
How to wash off DIY Sidewalk Paint
If you are going to let it dry after the kids are done painting with sidewalk chalk, then I suggest using the washable paint as it is easier to clean then using food coloring. If you are going to wash it soon after having the kids color with it then use the food coloring.
To clean the paint off your driveway or sidewalk, just grab the garden hose and spray they artwork off. SUPER Easy! The kids also like to be the ones to clean off the driveway, because they then squirt each other with the hose.
