Sidewalk Chalk- DIY Challenge Day Three

Monday’s I spend with my adorable Five year old grandson, It’s hot today but i’m going to drag him out of the pool for a crafting break, he loves crafting almost as much as I do so I think he will be OK with today’s project.



  • Tempera Paint
  • Plaster of Paris
  • Water
  • Wrapping Paper Tubes, or molds
  • Wax Paper
  • Masking Tape
  • Scissors

Cut the tube into 5 inch segments.  Line the interiors with wax paper, tape the base to seal one end, and set aside.

 For each color:

Mix 2-3 tablespoons of tempera paint with 1/2 cup of water.  Stir in 3/4 cup of plaster of Paris.  Spoon the mixture into a sandwich baggy and snip the end.  Squeeze the contents into the tube. Prop straight up.

It’s messy so outside is a good idea, clearly we are not afraid to make a mess at our house!


My heart molds worked great!

Allow to dry at room temperature for at least 12 hours.  Enjoy!

Love Hope
