Three words that can drive anyone crazy: “Momma, I’m Bored!” We’ve been sick and stuck at home all week, and that phrase has become increasingly popular with my two girls. So today we brought out our super-sized container of cornstarch and made sidewalk paint and gooey gunk. Here are the recipes for a quick, easy and frugal fun time!

Sidewalk Paint
MIX TOGETHER:
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup water
6-8 drops food coloring






Gooey Gunk
MIX TOGETHER:
1/3 cup water
5-7 drops food coloring

SLOWLY ADD WITHOUT STIRRING:
3/4 cup cornstarch

***Smart Momma Tip: Gooey Gunk is a good hands-on experiment when teaching your child about the three different states of matter. It is both a liquid and a solid!
