1. Ice colors
A little bit of water, some food coloring and a lot of patience until it all freezes over (this last ingredient is the most difficult to get). Super refreshing on hot summer days!
2. Liquid chalk
Cornstarch, food coloring and water are all you need for this fun way of painting. We had a small container in which we were preparing it, so we used one tablespoon of cornstarch, two tablespoons of water and a few drops of food coloring.
You can paint with a brush, or you can use your hands, and it's great and if you leave these colors in the sun, because when the water evaporates, you get the classic chalk, but irregularly shaped.
The photos are lousy, I know, but we did it on the day with a strong wind, so we had to hunt the stuff in our backyard, and unfortunately there was no time for taking many photos.
Let the play begin!
