Who knew it was this easy to make your own sidewalk chalk!
It’s my favorite time of the year. The weather is gorgeous. It isn’t too hot and it isn’t freezing outside. The windows are open and you can actually sit outside and enjoy the cool breeze. The kids are all outside riding their bikes and playing catch while the adults talk to each other. It’s so refreshing to see all the kids leave their electronics inside while they run around outside.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Why would you make your own sidewalk chalk when you can buy it for $1? Well, let me just tell you – Connor and I had a blast making this together so you can’t buy that. And, we were both very proud of our dinosaur chalk. We were so excited when the popped out of the mold and we more excited to see that it actually works. I’m not gonna lie – I was a little nervous and worried that it wouldn’t actually be like sidewalk chalk. But guess what? It’s awesome and Connor was so excited to tell all his friends that he made his very own dinosaur sidewalk chalk.
Let’s have some fun and make sidewalk chalk:
First, gather your supplies:
- Tempera Paint
- Plaster of Paris
- Paper cups
- Popsicle sticks
- Silicone mold
Step 1: Add 1/2 cup of water to each paper cup.
Step 2: Add 2-3 tablespoons of paint to each cup of water.
Step 3: Slowly add 3/4 cup of Plaster of Paris to each cup. Mix with popsicle stick.
Step 4: Pour each cup of mixture into each cavity of the silicone mold. Let dry at room temperature for at least 12 hours.
Enjoy and have fun with your awesome homemade sidewalk chalk.
