How to Make Sidewalk Chalk Paint
Directions: To make the sidewalk chalk paint I mixed equal amounts of cornstarch and water. I made three batches, yellow, red, and green. I mixed liquid watercolor paint in with the cornstarch and water before pouring the sidewalk chalk paint into squeezy bottles. If you prefer, sidewalk chalk could be used in place of the paint.
I drew apples in our driveway and wrote numbers inside of them. The numbers can easily be adapted depending on your child's level and ability. Basic counting and number recognition, even and odd numbers, or addition facts could be practiced with this gross motor math activity.
J-Bug hopped from number to number counting by tens as he jumped. In true little boy form he shouted the numbers. In inclement weather gross motor skip counting can be done inside with tape.
