Frugal and Fun activity for kids – Outdoor paint

A fun activity that we did recently was make “outdoor paint”.

The kids helped me mix equal parts cornstarch and water. They then got choose their own colour and add a few drops of food colouring to the mixture.

We took it outside and painted the ground and the wall (and their feet?!)

Easy, cheap and kept them amused for quiet a while. It also washed off with a hose really easily later in the day.
