Summer is almost here – yippee! Aren’t you excited to finally get outside those four walls and, better yet, get your KIDS outside? Fresh air and lots of run-around play is so good for them.
Our little kiddos love to bring their artistic skills outdoors with them. Forget paper and crayons. They really get into using chalk on the driveway. Hopscotch – tic tac toe – drawings everywhere. As a mom and preschool teacher, it makes me feel happy knowing that they are using perfectly safe materials in their artsy play.
This recipe is for homemade sidewalk chalk in a bottle. Yep! Your kids can squirt decorations all over the driveway and it simply washes away in the next rain. Each ingredient is a gentle household item found right in your kitchen cupboard – nothing harsh. And, when it comes to cleanup, you can simply wash their clothes with NEW sulfate free all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS®. NEW sulfate free all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS® delivers a powerful clean without harshness.
Here is how you make …
Homemade Sidewalk Chalk In A Bottle
Empty plastic squeeze condiment bottles
Large mixing bowl
Fork / Spoon
NEW sulfate free all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS® – for clean up
Towels – for clean up
1/3 cup Cornstarch
1/3 cup Baking Soda
1 1/3 cup Water
This recipe is for one squeeze bottle. You will want to repeat it for as many bottles as you use.
Put cornstarch in the mixing bowl.
Add baking soda and stir to mix.
Add water, stirring constantly.
Pour the mixture into a clean squeeze condiment bottle.
Add a few drops of food coloring.
Secure the lid.
Shake till mixed well.
Tip 1: Sediment from the mixture will settle to the bottom of the bottles. They will need to be reshaken occasionally. The kids will figure that out!
Tip 2: Expect this day of fun to produce a mess. It comes with the territory! I just want you to be prepared for food coloring stains. Have your children wear old clothes and old shoes or flip flops. Have some towels ready for clean up – along with your NEW sulfate free all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS® waiting in the wings for you to launder them back to cleanness!
I bought my all® sulfate free at Walmart. They were located right in the laundry detergent aisle at the top.
Here is a good shot [below] of the sulfate free all® bottle in my cart so that you know what to look for. It comes in both fragrance free or fresh scent 36.4oz/28ld.
Are you a label reader? Well, check this out. Every ingredient is listed on the bottle so that you can be confident about what is going into your family’s laundry. This is one of the first laundry detergents ever to do that! You can see just what is in there and why they are essentials. We moms want powerful clean in our detergent, don’t we! But it is also important to us that, while this sulfate-free formula is deep cleaning and lifting the toughest stains, it is not harsh. They figured that out!
