DIY Chalk Recipe Outdoor Craft Activities for Kids



My daughter had ‘lil Moomette’s pictures taken today in her Easter Bonnet and Easter dress! It’s been pouring cats & dogs here in Connecticut for 2 days now. I know the rain is needed to bring those May flowers, but my Baby Boomer bones don’t need Doppler Radar to tell me what the weather’s going to be! In the meantime, start planning ahead for that nice Spring weather that’s on its way and ‘chalk’ this great DIY Sidewalk Chalk recipe craft project up as a keeper!

Sidewalk Chalk


CRAFT: DIY Sidewalk Chalk

What You Need:

– 1 Cup Plaster of Paris
– 1 Cup Water
– Powdered Tempera Paint
– Toilet paper Rolls

How To Make It

1. Mix the Plaster of Paris with the water. Add the powdered tempera paint in the color of your choice. You can also divide the plaster mixture into several containers and color each one with a different color paint.

2. Let it sit for a few minutes. Stand up the toilet paper rolls and pour your plaster into them. These will be your molds for the chalk. Set them aside and let the mixture dry for at least 24 hrs. Once the mixture is dry, remove the cardboard roll. If the chalk still seems moist, let it dry for another 24 hrs.

3. Use like any sidewalk chalk.
