Painting With Chalk

It’s all over the internet … painting with chalk! You’ve seen your kid … rubbing in the chalk he just colored with on the sidewalk to fill in the holes. Eliminate that step by doing this:

What You’ll Need
Sidewalk Chalk
Ziploc Bag

What You’ll Do

  1. Add your pieces of used sidewalk chalk into the Ziploc bag. With your hammer, crush those pieces into powder as best you can. Pour the powder into the bowl. Be sure not to DUMP it or you’ll be breathing in chalk dust.
  2. Add a little water. You don’t want it pasty, more like a watery paint.
  3. Use your imagination and paint with your newly made sidewalk chalk paint!
