DIY Sidewalk Chalk Will Keep Your Kids Entertained All Summer

Sidewalk chalk will keep your kids entertained all summer! You can use it to play hopscotch, four-square or just to scribble some silly drawings. It's hours of fun but it's also really simple to make.

The great part about this project is that you can make the chalk into any shapes you like. You can find the molds we used here, but any shape will do! Be careful not to pour any of the Plaster of Paris down the drain or you'll end up with damaged pipes.



In a plastic cup mix together the cold water and 2 tbsp of tempera paint.

Add 2/3 cup Plaster of Paris and mix until thoroughly combined.

Pour all your colors into the silicone mold. Gently tap the mold to release any air bubbles that might be trapped in the mixture.

Insert the wooden craft sticks into the middle of each section and let dry for 24 hours.

Once dry your sidewalk chalk is ready to use!
