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
