Your shopping list:
Squirt Chalk Paint Materials – I’m hoping you have in your home!
*The ONE item you will need to purchase for the project!
Squirt Bottles — set of 6!
1.) You will need one squirt bottle for each color of paint you want to make. Fill each bottle roughly 2/3 full with a corn starch and baking soda mixture. It should be roughly about the same of both ingredients.
2.) Add a few drops of food coloring and fill the bottles the rest of the way with water. Then stir the ingredients. The mixture is VERY thick at first, but soon all the ingredients melt into a colorful paint.
3.)After you have the mixture mixed a bit place the cap on the squeeze bottles and shake them well. Note- you will also want to fill a couple squirt bottles with vinegar.
4.) After the paint has all been squeezed out…then it’s time to play with the vinegar bottles!! It bubbles up and then time to jump and splash on it! It’s science!
Then it is time to PLAY!
Ideas on how to use:
—-> Draw lines on the ground for TIC TAC TOE, hop scotch or just draw designs! Create a track for your kids to drive their toy cars or their big POWER WHEELS toys. The ideas are endless. Hours of fun outside in the shining sun, get those endorphins going and go on and get outside! 😀
