How to make Puffy Sidewalk Paint with 2 ingredients that’s extremely puffy, colorful, and perfect for outside art with the kids.

This recipe only has 2 ingredients so it’s super easy to make, and I LOVE how PUFFY it turns out. It is the best sidewalk puffy paint recipe around if you ask me… :), but don’t take my word for it, check out the video and pictures below. Once the puffy paint is dry and the kids are done admiring their 3D chalk art, it easily cleans up with water and will return your driveway back into a plain piece of concrete until the next time the kids decide to decorate it again.

Summer is long, check out this homemade Chalk Paint and Chalk Bombs for more artistic ideas that will keep the kids having fun and being creative outside.

Cut off the tip of your Pastry Bags-affiliate link, insert an icing top, and fill the bag with the sidewalk puffy paint. We used our largest Icing Tips-affiliate link, but any of them should work because the mixture is soft. If you don’t have pastry bags you can put the sidewalk puffy paint into bags and cut off one of the corners so it will squirt out just the same as a pastry bag.

Now comes the fun part, let kids decorate the sidewalks as they please. Have them squeeze the top of the bag to keep the sidewalk puffy paint inside the pastry bag. As they squeeze the paint should come out the end, just like frosting. We used different frosting tips to create different looks.

Once the kids were done painting we left their artwork to dry. When they touched it, the paint smashed down a bit and then turned to powder. We washed it off with the hose and got ready to paint again.
