Making your own sidewalk chalk is super easy and lots of fun to do with kids. This afternoon, my kids and I made some sidewalk chalk in the shape of Easter eggs to give away as gifts to their friends. To make your own sidewalk chalk, you will need the following items:
Plaster of Paris
Step 1: In a plastic container, mix together 1 1/2 cups plaster of paris, 1 cup of water and 2-3 Tablespoons of the powdered tempura paint in the color of your choice. The mixture should be the consistancy of a runny milkshake.
The kids and I painted some used egg cartons with a gallon of leftover paint to create the packaging for these super cute Easter gifts.
