We used this sidewalk chalk paint recipe.  All you need is cornstarch, water and a bit of food colouring.

Pour the paint into an ice cube tray and allow it to freeze completely.

 Then just have the kids take it outside and watch it melt all over the sidewalk.

The boys played with different colour combinations and drip, dropped the paint all over the place.

Super fun and easy this activity should give you about 15 minutes of peace and quiet.  
Fingers crossed.  hee hee

    years ago I had a recipe I made out of chalk for painting very simple however,I can’t remember I thought it was just water and chalk when it melted it became thick and the girls painted trees they had soooo much fun.
