Today I’ll show you how to make sidewalk paint. It’s really interesting and it is fun for children to draw on the street, of course, you can use the traditional crayons, but as I know, many children prefer paints. For those who are afraid to try for some reason, I must say that the colors are completely harmless, they are easily washed off from sidewalk and the child’s skin and clothing, and to draw with them is a pleasure. And now I tell you the recipe:
