Sidewalk Paint

We love sidewalk chalk around here.  Last year I found a recipe for sidewalk paint and thought we’d try it out.  We had a lot of fun with it and my kids have asked to do it again every day since.

  • Erin @ blue-eyed bride - What a great idea!! My boys would love this!

  • Erin - Lex thanks you in advance. This looks AWESOME!

    Also. Your math problem to comments make me thing every day. Today’s is especially puzzling. I need to sharpen my math skills because lex will be better at math than me by first grade at this rate.

  • Jenny Collier - It was a lot of fun! Kept my kid’s attention a lot longer than sidewalk chalk!

  • Jenny Collier - Ugh, I hate the silly math problems. But if I don’t do something I get HUNDREDS of spam comments (and emails) a day. It’s insane. Wish there was a better option.

    Have fun with the sidewalk paint, Lex!
