Corn Starter Ghosts and Sidewalk Paint

Add cornstarch to Easter egg dye, and you get a pretty good sidewalk paint.

Sidewalk painting

Add cornstarch to kids and you get ghosts!
Corn Starter 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.)

    That looks like it must have been loads of fun!

    Aw. I sometimes miss the cute mispronunciations. That looks like it was fun. And washable. Washable is always good.

    I’m banking on washable, but we haven’t had rain to test it out! (It’s supposed to rain on Saturday though, just in time for our outdoor birthday party – grrr….)
