Making your own sidewalk chalk paint at home from old stubs of chalk is cheap and easy. Have fun painting outside on a sunny day for a great measy play activity. My daughter enjoyed it so much she wants to do it again tomorrow.

Time: 5 mins to make. We then spent over an hour painting.

A good way to use up small stubs of chalk


Method
Gather old stubs of sidewalk or classroom chalk
Sort into colours
Put each colour into a ziplock bag and close the bag

We sorted a blue/green/yellow/white bag and a red/pink/purple/yellow/white bag


Crush and roll the chalk bag with the rolling pin until you have chalk powder

Put the chalk powder into a pot and add water until you get the paint thickness you want. We added about two parts water to one part chalk.
Repeat with other chalk colours until you have made as many colours of paint as you want

Chalk paint ready for play


Now have fun painting with your chalk paint outside.
You could try painting on the driveway, bricks, teracotta pots or even wooden fences. The chalk paint should wash off in the rain or with a hose.

The chalk paint dries with a pretty powdery finish

We filled a big bucket of water with loads of soapy bubbles and my toddler had a great time washing the chalk paint off the fence today - and it did come off easily after all :-)
