Chalk Paint Recipe

Summer is such a great time to get creative and messy in the great outdoors!
One weekend my children and I explored with cornstarch, water and tempera paint.

We mixed equal parts water and cornstarch, then added a blob of paint, stirred the mixture until we had a vibrant colour and smooth consistency.

The paints were beautiful to work with. My children decorated the sidewalk, rocks, made a hopscotch and played math games until the paint was gone.


1/2 cup of cornstarch
1/2 cup of water
Tbsp of tempera paint

Optional - a squirt of dish soap for a greater washability

Stir well and have fun!

Visit Laura at the Scott location on August 21 for a chance to make chalk paint to take home. Call (306) 523-3512 to register for any of the " Sensory Make and Take" programs during August!
