Homemade Chalk Paint aka Outdoors Paint

Chalky Paint

We all loved this paint. I can just imagine painting a whole mural with it all over the driveway. Mix up a heap of colours and venture outside when it’s cool to have fun with the kiddos. See who can draw the biggest picture, then wash away with water or just wait until mother natures rain removes it for you.
