Whether its hopscotch or a driveway mural, sidewalk paint is just plain fun—and making your own is even easier than you could imagine. It only takes a few ingredients and is totally naturally sourced, making it a great nonsynthetic alternative to other forms of sidewalk colors. Adding essential oils makes the experience even more interactive, offering a cooling, calming aroma to your children as they tap into their creativity during the day.Ingredients
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the cornstarch and water.
- Divide mixture into six small bowls (about ½ cup of mixture in each).
- Add one drop of different natural food colorings to each individual bowl, stirring to combine. Depending on your preference, add additional drops of coloring to get the hue you want!
- Add one drop each Peppermint and Cedarwood to every bowl. Stir to combine.
Once you’ve made your paint, you are ready to go! Grab a few large paint brushes and make the concrete your canvas. We know there are plenty of Monets and Picassos out there—snap a photo and share your little ones’ creations with your friends, then tag us on Instagram (@doterraca). We would love to see their art!
