Sidewalk Chalk Paint

It was a beautiful day so the kids and I decided to make sidewalk chalk paint as a new take on painting and chalk.  It was very easy and fun to do.  My son, who is not into crafts, said he didn’t want to do it.  When he saw we were hammering the chalk in baggies to make our paint, he quickly changed his mind.  It was very simple and fun. This will be a repeat again later in the summer.

First divide your chalk into colors.  We did pink, yellow, and blue.  Then put them into a baggie and seal the baggie.  Use a hammer or whatever you have handy to crush the chalk into pieces.  Dump the pieces into a cup and add water.  You now have paint.  Get a paintbrush and enjoy!
