Today was a rainy day so I was looking for ideas to burn energy while indoors. This is a great project for that and then when it is sunny, we will have an easy activity!
We made chalk paint, it was super easy, first you choose a piece of chalk and put it in a bag. Then you get something to start hitting it with to crush the chalk. You will probably need to get it started for younger children, a play hammer might also be helpful but we had chunky puzzle pieces.
Then you put it in a container and add some water and mix- you could also shake the jar if that is easier. We did both.
Then it is done! You can take it outside and use it just like chalk on the sidewalk, paint it on and hose it off. Fun stuff!
