Make Colored Sidewalk Chalk

First find a mold for your sidewalk chalk. Anything from a toilet tissue roll or small paper cup to fancy candy molds will work. Mix together 1 cup of Plaster of Paris with 1 cup of water. Add color to your mixture using powdered tempera paint. Experiment with making swirled colors by adding the paint and stirring very little. Blend well and let stand for a few minutes. Pour your mixture into the molds you chose. Set aside and let dry completely. Drying time can take from several hours to a few days depending on the size of the mold you chose. Once dry you can remove your chalk from the mold. Set it aside to dry for approximately 24 hours more. Take your chalk outside and create fun masterpieces!
