I read this quote and was like "huh, I totally see that with Little Man":
“Interestingly I was talking to a nursery teacher recently who said that a recent study showed that boys in particular are more likely to engage with painting and drawing on larger surfaces. If the experience feels ‘contained’ by a small bit of paper or is ‘fiddly’ in any way they are far less likely to be engaged whereas girls seem to enjoy it”
SO when I ran across an easy recipe for Liquid Sidewalk Chalk, I thought the boys and I needed to try it. The whole sidewalk should be a large enough surface to engage the little misters. I mixed two cups of cornstarch, two cups of water which filled two old muffin tins (we use them in the boys "play kitchen stuff"). Then I got out the food coloring- not sure how old it is or if it really even goes bad. I liked the NEON food colors- they dry very bright.
