In the spirit of Outdoor Play Month, reader Amanda wrote in to share a fun outdoor painting activity that her kids, Josie and Jasper, love and - most importantly - that's a cinch to clean up afterwards.

So your kids love to paint and you want to encourage this creativity without spending twice as much time cleaning up as they did expressing themselves through paint?

Maybe the answer is a little cornstarch, food coloring and water? Check out Amanda's instructions for this fun, outdoor "chalk" paint at her great blog, The Library Collective.

Thanks for sharing this idea, Amanda!
