Paint Roller Painting

DO NOT TRY THIS IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT STAINS.

My son has always loved using the paint roller - even just to pretend.  He played a role in painting his bedroom as well as his playroom.  Recently, he has been taking out the roller to pretend to paint, so I thought I would set up an invitation for him.  We tackled this on a small scale one morning....painting the back porch........

Painting the back porch.

Our back porch is stained and the paint washed off nicely.  We used a basic washable tempera paint.

Today I set up an invitation for him to paint the driveway.  It was a huge hit, but didn't wash off as easily.  There is a very slight stain, but I'm confident it will fade with time.  
I would not try this on surfaces that are highly porous.

  2. If you are worried about staining, you could make a driveway paint out of cornstarch, water, and food coloring. The kids would love mixing the paint colors up, and it typically washes right off. You will want it to mix it up to approximately the consistency of actual paint so the colors will be more vibrant. :) If its too watery the colors don't show as well on the concrete.
