How to Make Sidewalk Chalk Paint
Are you looking for something fun to do with your kiddos? Try out this homemade chalk paint!
Several years ago, (MANY years ago!), we made this DIY sidewalk chalk paint, and as I was looking some old pictures I noticed these. I remember how much my kids loved it and it was so simple and definitely penny pinched so I wanted to share this easy DIY. It's a great idea to help beat boredom and gives the kids a great memory too – fun!
Here's how to make chalk paint with acrylic paint:
Gather up your ingredients. You may already have all of this in your pantry. If not, you can grab everything for around $20 with Amazon Prime!
- Plaster of Paris – 1 cup (you can get a big container of this for not very much!)
- Water – 1 cup
- Acrylic Paint (for color – you can find small bottles of paint at the Dollar Tree or Walmart too)
- Mold for chalk (you could even use small paper cups or ice cube trays if you don't have a mold)
Note: This may leave white residue even after it's washed away – test out in a small spot on your driveway to be on the safe side if you're concerned about that prior to letting your kiddos have at it! 😉 It washed off for me without any issues, but someone let me know they've had that problem with it in the past.
