Homemade Sidewalk Chalk

craftskids crafts

Every day after nap my three old and I do some type of craft. This week we made homemade sidewalk chalk. Sidewalk chalk is super easy to make and is not very expensive. Next time your child want to do a craft, reach in your cupboard and get some corn starch and food coloring, it is really that easy.

Homemade Sidewalk Chalk

Ingredients

  • Cornstarch
  • Food coloring
  • Water
  • Paint brush
  • Egg container*/muffin tin

Note: I like to keep our used egg containers for projects like these. Plus it's an easy way to clean up!

Directions

  1. Place 2 tbsp of cornstarch in a few sections (depends on how many colors you'd like to make).
  2. Place 2 tbsp of water on the same sections.
  3. Drop 3-5 drops of food coloring (depends on how vibrant you want each color).
