Pavement Paint D.I.Y

I am positive you will have these 3 ingredients at home, if not you will find them at your local supermarket or even a small local shop. You can even buy them in bulk for well under £10 and you will have endless days of fun throughout the school holidays. Its super easy to remember so you will do them again and again.


Believe me when I say they really are just like paint, take it outdoors and let the kids imaginations run wild. Me and Emily had a couple games of Noughts & Crosses, and she painted a Hopscotch. You will find the brushes we used here. However you can always use Daddy’s painting brushes. The thicker the bristles the better. When you first paint it just looks wet, as soon as it dries you will see the colouring come to life and as will your creations.

How long does the paint last?

In a jar it will last a good few hours. It can’t be premade so make it up when you’re going to use it. Get the kids involved in the making because lets face it the minute you tell them that you are going to make this they will insist they can help make it. On the Pavement it’ll last a good old rainy night.
