  • 1.

    Ask an adult to help find a safe, large area of concrete or asphalt surface that is at least 6 months old. Ask permission before you paint with your Crayola® Washable Sidewalk Paint Kit. Test a small area for staining before painting.

  • 2.

    Mix paints to achieve the colors you want. With the Crayola So Big Brush and paint roller included in your kit, create a personalized message, greeting, or announcement. Use contrasting colors that complement each other. Create eye-catching pictures to get your message across. Air-dry paint completely.

  • 3.

    Paints wash from skin with soap and water. Normal laundering procedures remove stains from most cotton, polyester, acrylic fabrics, and their blends. For best results, wash immediately in hot water. Do not use pre-wash products as they may set stains. Severe staining may require repeat laundering or all-fabric bleach.

    Some ideas: To announce a new baby or adoption, paint a welcome sign, including signatures of all the well wishers. Congratulate someone on a promotion or graduation. Announce a birthday or party location. Welcome home travelers or college students.

  • 5.

    Remove paint after 2 weeks. Wash surface with the water pressure from a garden hose. Light brushing with a broom or nylon brush may be necessary to remove some paint.
