    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup plaster of paris
    • 1/2 cup cool water
    • 3 tablespoons liquid powdered tempura paints


    1. 1
      Pour plaster into a clean container (like a coffee tin or ice cream tub).
    2. 2
      Using a disposable stir-stick, stir in most, but NOT all, of the water.
    3. 3
      Add 2 tbsp of the liquid tempera paint, mixing well, especially at the bottom; add another tbsp of paint if you think it needs it.
    4. 4
      Add a little more water as the mixture thickens.
    5. 5
      Stir well and pour into small containers, such as the tiny dixie paper cups.
    6. 6
      Peel paper off after the chalk dries, give to the kids, and let them have fun; outside, of course!

      This is the recipe I use all the time with the girls; they love it! I usually use empty TP tubes, capped tightly on one end with plastic wrap and foil, for the molds. We usually use the larger amt of paint. Great fun! :o)
