Side walk chalk DIY

This a fun activitie for kids,creating out in the road ,in the drive way in the fresh air
and once there done with there master piece ,snap a picture and get the hose out and
spray.It all washes away easy peasy..
Making it could get a bit messy but kids love to mix in the mixture and help out pouring .
Materials :

  • Tempera Paint (use primary,and mix secondary colors)
  • Plaster of Paris
  • Water
  • Wrapping Paper Tubes
  • Wax Paper
  • Masking Tape
  • Sandwich baggies (for piping bags)
  • Scissors
Cut the tube into 5 inch segments.  Line the interiors with wax paper, tape the base to seal one end, and set aside.The following  recipe is for one color .
Mix 2-3 tablespoons of tempera paint with 1/2 cup of water.  Stir in 3/4 cup of plaster of Paris.  Spoon the mixture into a sandwich baggy and snip the end.  Squeeze the contents into the tube. Prop straight up (I used the masking tape ring to support my 6 tubes).
Allow to dry at room temperature for at least 12 hours.  Enjoy!
