Turn Your Photo Dreams Into Reality with Sidewalk Chalk

You don't have to be an amazing artist to take great photos. You just need an eye for color and look at the resources around you in a different way.

With just a simple vision and some sidewalk chalk you can make the most innovative photos that will not only serve as great keepsakes but are a blast to make!

From under the sea to flying over buildings, capture your kids in ways you didn't think possible.

There are tricks to getting beautiful images like this complete with vibrant colors. Mix up some homemade sidewalk pant.

Homemade sidewalk paint

  • ½ cup of water
  • ½ cup of cornstarch
  • Approximately 12 drops of food coloring — this can be adjusted to achieve desired color
  • Jar with a lid
  • Paint brushes, foam brushes or sponges

Mix all ingedients into a sealed jar and shake well. You can make several colors this way, using individual jars.

If the paint appears dry, add a few more drops of water.

The possibilities are endless.

And a great way to have some fun with the kids.

Some are more complicated than others, like this one that took the artist 2 hours to create.

Who says that my dreams have to stay just my dreams?
