Is This Cornstarch Chalk Popsicles Safe For Toddlers
Yes, technically these are edible since it is just water, cornstarch, and food coloring. I mean it isn’t going to be tasty, but it is okay if it gets on their hands and they ingest some of the popsicles.
I wanted to create something that you didn’t have to worry if it got on your child or they licked their hand and had some of the mix on their hands. This helps me feel more at peace as a mom, when I had little ones running around.
What Do You Need For Chalk Popsicles
How To Use Cornstarch Chalk Popsicles
Once your cups are frozen, you will cut them out of the Dixie Cups. Then head outdoors and let the kids have fun drawing on the sidewalk. They will melt especially if the sidewalk is hot.
You can use these just like sidewalk chalk. They are a bit messy but it is a ton of fun for kids, so it is worth it.
- 1 1/2 cups cornstarch
- 1 1/2 cups water
- Dixie cups
- mini popsicle sticks
- food coloring
- Combine cornstarch and water in a bowl. Pour into six Dixie cups. Add three drops of food coloring into each Dixie cup and mix with a popsicle stick.
- If desired, you can combine the food coloring drops to make new colors!
- Cover each cup with foil and poke a popsicle stick through.
- (The cups will bend easily, so be careful when covering with the foil!
- And, you might have to poke with a knife first before inserting popsicle stick through foil.)
- Freeze until completely hardened, about four hours.
