We had a great time making this sidewalk chalk paint and covering our driveway in it!
I love the texture of it and how bold the colors are. It’s definitely a change from regular sidewalk chalk.

    Great idea! My ten yr old could do this for hours (literally- we live next to an elementary school playground). Thx for following me (JerseyDivaMom). Will be checking in here for fun things to entertain my cherubs.

    I’ve done this and it works well – HOWEVER, be aware that the food coloring does not always wash out of clothing, so don’t wear anything new. (Can you tell I figured this out the hard way?) 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this! My kids love writing on the driveway. I’ve never seen a recipe for the sidewalk chalk before.
