  • Plaster of Paris (dry powder, not mixed. They have this at Michaels)
  • Tempera Paint (have fun with the colors!)
  • Silicon Mold
  • Water
  • Disposable Cups
  • Plastic Spoons


  1. For each color you will need a separate cup.
  2. Fill each cup with 3/4 cup of water.
  3. Add 1/4 cup of paint
  4. Add 1 cup of Plaster of Paris
  5. Mix well
  6. Pour mixture into molds (I cleaned up the edges with a paper towel)
  7. If you want to layer colors just pour the first color in and add the second or third on top (see picture below - don't mix them)
  8. Let dry for 24 hours. Remove them from the mold (be careful because they are still soft and you need to carefully pop them out). Let them dry outside the molds for an additional 24 hours!
  9. Presto - your own homemade sidewalk chalk!!!! So fun!!
