Cool Chalk Drawings

Kids love playing with chalk. This is a alternative to regular outisde chalk drawings.  In this activity kids will create chalk drawings with wet chalk on construction paper.

Materials: Colored Chalk, Construction Paper (black works the best), 1 cup Water, Sugar, Water, Cup.

Step 1: Fill the cup 1/4 of the way with sugar.

Step 2: Add 1 cup of water. Mix

Step 3: Place the colored chalk into the mixture.  A little less then half of the length of the chalk should be covered in the mixture.

Step 4:  The chalk should sit in the mixture for 2-3 hours.  If you don’t have time to wait the kids can dip the  tip of the chalk into the mixture before each use.

The chalk will write much brighter than before and it won’t smear as much. If you want to keep your child’s picture to frame or put on the refrigerator go to step 5

Step 5: Spray lightly with hairspray and let dry. The chalk will set and won’t smear.

Have fun creating cool chalk drawings!
