This is a fun project for some play time outside with the kiddos. A lot of the supplies you need can be found around the house. This sidewalk foam paint is super fun to play with. It’s a little fancier than chalk, but still washable and easy to clean up with a little soap and water.
You will need:
- 1 gallon plastic zipper bag
- 1 cup white flour
- Two 4 oz. bottles of washable school glue
- 4-5 cups plain white shaving foam
- Sandwich-sized plastic zipper bags. You will need one for every color you want to make. This recipe will fill about 4 sandwich bags.
- Food coloring drops
- Add the flour to your gallon size plastic zipper bag.
- Pour both bottles of washable school glue on top of the flour.
- Spray about 4-5 cups of shaving foam into the bag. It may be easier to eyeball it than measure it with a measuring cup. This isn’t a science experiment, so don’t stress too much about being exact.
- Close the bag and knead it for a few minutes until everything is totally mixed.
- Snip one corner of the big bag and squirt into sandwich-sized plastic zipper bags to divide it up per color.
- Add drops of your desired food coloring to each bag. You can make the color as saturated or pastel as you like. Let the kids help you pick.
- Knead each smaller bag until color is throughout all the bag.
- Snip off a tiny corner of each sandwich bag with scissors so the kids can squeeze and write or draw with the foam paint. You can always cut a bigger hole if needed, so start small.
Have fun on the sidewalk, driveway, or even paper if you want!
