~Bathtub Finger Paints~

This is another GREAT idea from a friend of a friend! I love it! Hope you love it too!!

Materials needed:

1/3 c. clear mild liquid dish detergent

1 Tbls cornstarch

food coloring

Mix the liquid soap and the cornstarch together in a small bowl until blended. Pour the mixture, in equal parts, into several plastic containers (an ice tray works perfectly). Add 1-2 drops of food coloring to each container and mix with a small spoon.

This not only writes on the tub but also on your skin (just watch out for the eyes!) Not only will it get you clean, but your tub will shine!!

~Recipe for Homemade Sidewalk Chalk~

This is the most wonderful sidewalk chalk and it can be made at home!! The colors are super vibrant too! This would make a wonderful children's birthday gift put into a cellophane bag tied with really bright ribbon!!

Materials needed:
2 2/3 cups quick setting Plaster of Paris
1/2 cup powdered tempera paint (can be found at most large craft stores)
1 1/4 cup water
rubbery mold in fun shapes (can be found at Target)

Mix the Plaster of Paris and tempera paint in a bowl. Add the water and mix until well blended. Quickly spoon the mixture into the molds. Let the chalk dry for at least 2 hours and then remove the mold. This recipe will make about six large shapes (an entire molds worth).

A friend of mine got this recipe from a friend and I was able to look at the chalk and it is so smooth and so bright! She made flower shapes and they were sooooo cute!! Have fun doing this with your kids!
