DIY Sidewalk Chalk!

Description

This is a really easy DIY project for summer. I loved the way this chalk turned out and can’t wait to make more and experiment with different colors.

Materials:
Cardboard tubes (saved from the center of paper towels, toilet paper, wrapping paper, and tinfoil, etc)
Silicone molds work great too!
Freezer paper or wax paper
Tempera paint
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups of Plaster of Paris

Duct tape off one side of each cardboard tube. Insert a sheet of freezer paper.
In a plastic container, mix 2 tablespoons of paint into the cup of water. Continue mixing while slowly adding in the Plaster of Paris. Mix until well combined – the mixture should be about the texture of frosting.
Fill your containers with the mixture and tap the cardboard tubes to release air bubbles.
Plaster will set in about 30-60 minutes. Check for hardness after 60 minutes and remove from tubes. Once chalk has been removed, place it on a drying rack for at least 24 hours before using. Enjoy!
