Hosting a color fight for a youth group activity is
a crowd favorite!  Everyone loves running around

making the color fight powder was not easy.

Recipe to Make DIY Color Fight Powder




recipe to make DIY color run powder

Supplies:

1 16 oz box of cornstarch
1/2 cup water


how to make DIY color run powder


Put 16 oz box of cornstarch in stand mixer.
Turn mixer on low.
Add full container of gel food color.  
(I only used 1/2 and the colors weren't as vibrant)
Dribble in 1/2 cup of water.  
Let the mixer stir.

Let the mixer do all the hard work for you- 
it may bog down a bit as the cornstarch and water harden, 
but keep mixing and it will break up.
Continue to mix until it gets pebble like.  
Mine took about 8-10 minutes for each batch.

After mixing, pour the colored powder onto baking sheets.
Bake at 250* for 20-25 minutes.
Pull it out and let it cool.  
It will be hard and rock like.

Put 3/4 cup into blender
and blend it to fine powder. 
Then pour it into sandwich baggies.

Each box of cornstarch made about 
6 bags of colored powder.


Youth Group Activity - color fight - DIY instructions for making color powder


For the color fight, 
I purchased white Tshirts for the youth in our group to wear.
We went to a park near our church for the activity.

Each youth received a baggie of powder
and away they went!

The laughing and screaming could be 
heard all around the park.

I even got in on the action.  It was a blast!! 
A few of the kids got hit in the eye with powder. 
So I would recommend everyone wear sunglasses or goggles.  
And maybe even have some water handy to rinse the face.

We all had a lot of fun and would do it again!!

  1. This looks like great fun!
    Maybe we do that at our girls Camp!
    Does the color get out of the t shirts or do they need old ones.

    1. Hi Kirsten. The color did come out of the shirts. We were kinda bummed that it did because we wanted them to stay colored. Anyone doing a color fight would probably want to wear old clothes just in case though. Hope your color fight goes well and you have a lovely time at Girls Camp!
