Ohio First Lady Fran DeWine shares recipe for sidewalk chalk paint

Ohio First lady Fran DeWine shared her recipe for sidewalk chalk paint on Friday.

Like many, Fran DeWine has spent the better part of the past month at home.

But that hasn't stopped Ohio's First Lady from keeping busy.

On Friday, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine started his daily coronavirus (COVID-19) press briefing off with a surprise as he turned to podium over to his wife. After sharing some of the protective masks she helped make for her grandchildren -- including a tiny one for her one-and-a-half-year-old grandson, Tad, Fran revealed that as she has before, she's sharing a new recipe -- this one for sidewalk chalk paint so that those at home aren't forced to go to the store to purchase it.

"I know a lot of people have been doing beautiful work with sidewalk chalk," Mrs. DeWine said. "It's hard to find it and you don't want to go to the store to look for it. My recipe just uses corn starch and water."
