Today, Charlotte got to have her first play date (without Mama or Papa). This would then be KiKi's first time without her daily companion. It wasn't easy for KiKi to understand why she couldn't tag along so I did my best to distract her and planned a special activity just for her.
KiKi loves to paint and be messy. What two year old doesn't?! With that in mind we decided that painting the porch would be a fun activity. We made up some paint (sidewalk chalk paint) grabbed some brushes and headed outdoors to "color our porch"!
For Kiks, the idea of painting on the porch was fun and made her giggle! Unfortunately, the color didn't stick; when the paint dried it turned white again, but, it was fun for her, nonetheless.
To make the paint you mix together:: 2 tbsp. of cornstarch, 2 tbsp. of water, a few drops of food coloring (we used our left over Easter egg dye that we save to use throughout the year). Stir it up and there you have it. You might have to kinda play with the consistency a bit and the paint doesn't work all that great on wood (our porch is wood) but it does work well on stone or concrete!
