Sidewalk Chalk Paint

G.A.G strikes again! We mixed non-toxic washable paint, corn starch, and water to make our 'paint'. 

It was an overcast day with 40% chance of rain. We used paintbrushes, rollers, and sponges to apply the washable paint. 

We learned a lot about what colors worked best, how much cornstarch to use, and tools we should bring next time. 

We realized that to 
make a big impact, 
we'll need 
a LOT more 
paint, supplies, 
and people.  

As usual, the best part was watching people's reactions, answering their questions, and...

getting dirty. 

It did end up raining, and all our work was washed away within hours. It was gratifying to see that the paint did, indeed, wash away (I tested it on the sidewalk in front of my house beforehand, but still). We felt fine about it because we learned so much about how to make it better next time - this was the practice session.
