Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Make Your Own Chalk!

You will need:
  • Craft Sticks (or disposable spoon or knife)
  • Washable Craft Paint
  • Plaster of Paris
  • Water
  • Paper cups
  • A bowl

  1. In a bowl, combine 1 cup Plaster of Paris with 2 Tbsp paint. Mix with craft stick.
  2. Slowly mix in water until it is thick and pasty.
  3. Pour into paper cups. Let dry for several hours.
  4. Once mixture is completely dry, peel off the paper cups.
  5. Enjoy!
Note: I used egg cartons for my mold and lined them with wax paper before filling. I let them dry about 24 hours, removed the chalk from the mold/wax paper and let dry overnight again to make sure it was completely dry. I had about 1 cup Plaster of Paris mixed with 1 cup water. I used Crayola Washable Paints
