Corn Starter Ghosts and Sidewalk Paint
Add cornstarch to Easter egg dye, and you get a pretty good sidewalk paint.
Add cornstarch to kids and you get ghosts!
My back was turned – all right, I was inside, getting more supplies! – when they decided that since cornstarch felt so good on their hands (this I encouraged before going in), they should rub it all over their arms, and maybe a little on their faces wouldn’t hurt either (these two were not my ideas!). T-boy kept saying “corn starter” instead of cornstarch, and his friend is the one who decided they were ghosts. What you can’t see here is that the “cornstarter” bag had a hole in the corner, so much of it ended up on the porch.
(They’re wearing matching shirts because we went on a field trip in the morning.)
