Here we are over two weeks into 2013, and I still feel like I’m trying to settle into the new year. Way back when, I showed you the invitations for my children’s color party. Well I had a big crazy idea to have a color powder fight. I am so excited to tell you that it was so much fun! You don’t have to take my word for it, look at the joy on those girls faces.
I have been seeing things like Color Runs and the festival of Holi become more and more popular in recent years. I thought it would be so much fun to throw a color fight of my own. Thankfully my husband is always up for my crazy ideas! After a lot of googling, I realized there aren’t that many resources out there for doing this, so hopefully this will be helpful for anyone else looking to do the same thing.
First I’ll tell you how to make the powder, then I’ll take about the actual fight.
Color Powder Recipe
1 lb Non-toxic Tempera Paint Powder – I liked the Colorations brand the best. Hobby Lobby carries one brand, but that is the only store that I found that had the powder in the store.
1 lb Corn Starch – Walmart has 1 lb of corn starch for $0.97
