Painting the Town Red

And by town I mean our front sidewalk. And by red I mean more like pastel pink.

Thanks to my friend from HS, Brittani, and another fabulous idea from her blog (she's full of them), we made sidewalk paint. It's one of those things where you think...hey I have all those ingredients, why not?

You mix equal parts cornstarch and water to make a milk like substance, then add food coloring. The corn starch seems to help it adhere to the ground and make a really bright color as well.

Then grab some paint brushes and go to town!

The girls said this was a pink pig with a blue head. Freaky.

We only did this for a little while before we had to head back inside. Why, because Indiana weather is CRAZY and it his 99 degrees this afternoon with a heat advisory. In September. Sheesh.
