Sidewalk Chalk



Summer is here! This activity is a fun spin on traditional chalk.  Easy, with minimal prep—you’ll have your kids outside painting and entertained in no time.

 

Materials needed:

  • Chalk
  • Grater
  • Paint brush
  • Containers (one per color)
  • Tablespoon
  • Water

 

Step one:  Grate an inch or so off the end of a piece of your chalk into a container.

Step two: Add a tablespoon or so of water to your chalk powder.

Step three: Mix and adjust ratio if needed.

Step four:  Paint! The paint will get darker as it dries. Have fun!
