i love when my kids surprise me.
i thought all summer that most of my kids were too big to care about chalk paint.
i was wrong.
sean and annie had friends over.
i finally whipped some up while they were fighting swimming.
it’s so easy.
the recipe is equal amounts of cornstarch and water.
and food coloring.
it’s thick to stir up at first but easily doable with a whisk.
i tried using my mixer and it worked better with a whisk and muscle.
i took a moment to admire my tiny patch of garden that did not FRY up on vacation….
the zinnias make me happy.
i should just plant them everywhere and not worry about anything else. 🙂
i took it outside thinking “they won’t even care but whatever”
and they came out of the pool and painted until it was all gone.
it looks clear at first and dries REALLY bright.
kids jumped in the pool and they were clean.
and this morning it rained….and it’s all gone.
simple as that.
our summer list had 45 things on it.
we have done 27.
school starts tuesday…..we’ll see what happens.
