I just love sunny days, don’t you? Today we tried something I’ve been wanting to do but the weather hasn’t been cooperating. That’s what living in a state known for its constant rain (but beautiful green foliage) does to you – it makes you appreciate sunny days like never before! So here’s what we did.
Painted our patio!
This is the COOLEST (and cheapest) paint ever – it’s just equal parts cornstarch and water with food coloring added. It dries looking just like sidewalk chalk and is a lot of fun to paint with! I found this recipe here.
We experimented a bit. We splattered paint and it looked really cool!
Emma decided to try painting with her hands. I don’t recommend this since it doesn’t wash off as well as I had hoped (food coloring, duh).
We tried painting rocks.
Then I was distracted by a rather loud songbird on our roof.
And my cute little boy who really needed a good picture with mommy.
Emma had just as much fun rinsing off the paint as she did actually painting.
We can highly recommend this fun summer activity! Go find a sidewalk and PAINT! Don’t worry, it washes off awesomely with water without leaving stains. :)
