How to make colored chalk for kids

From an early age, you teach children that you don’t have to buy everything and that there are many things we can do ourselves. Make a joint project – colored chalk.

Children love to play with chalk and draw various shapes and “works of art” with the help of chalk, on the street. To have fun together and make something useful, make your own colored chalks, and then throw yourself into drawing and decorating your street. This idea Brit + co blog we just had to pass it on to you.

All you need for this fun experiment are:

colored chalk

  • Tempera of various colors
  • Gypsum powder
  • Silicone molds of various shapes
  • Plastic spoons and cups
  • Glove
  • Toothpicks

ΒΌ Mix a cup of paint with a cup of water, and then add a cup of gypsum powder. Mix everything well and fill the molds. If you want white chalk, mix a cup of water with a cup of chalk and fill the molds, without paint. Leave the chalk to dry in the molds for 24 hours and for another 24 hours after you have taken it out of the mold. If you notice water draining on the top of the chalk in the molds while drying, simply pick it up with paper towels.

If you want two-color chalk, pour half of the paint into the molds, leave it to dry for an hour, and then add gypsum mixed with another color. Check out these interesting video tutorials “Interesting masterpieces for kids”.
