Make Fizzing Sidewalk Paint

Mix together: a container of baking soda, 1/2 cup of cornstarch, and a cup of water. Stir until a not-too-thick paste forms. Add food coloring to create a hue you both like. Use it to “paint” on the sidewalk. The fizzy part: give your child a spray bottle of white vinegar to aim at the paint and watch it bubble up! It will wash off with water.
