Sidewalk Chalk

Have you ever tried making your own sidewalk chalk?

1 1/2 cups of warm water
3 1/2 cups of Plaster Patch (available at hardware stores)
6 tablespoons of washable tempera paint
Toilet paper tubes or wrapping paper tubes cut into 6" lengths
Large plastic mixing bowls - one for each color of chalk
Masking Tape
Use the masking tape to cover one each of each paper tube. Pour the warm water into a mixing bowl. Stir in Plaster Patch until the mixture is the consistency of sour cream. Add tempera paint powder to the plaster mixture and stir until well blended. Pour the plaster mixture into the paper tubes. Gently tap the tubes to remove any air bubbles. Let the chalk dry in the tubes for two days. Tear the paper from around the chalk and be creative!
