Little Missy was recently given a chalk making kit. The little ones got straight to it and made some fabulous looking chalks. Check out our instragram feed to see them.
I then thought how about using what we have around the house to make some super chunky chalks.We collected together some toilet rolls, plaster of paris, plastic tubs. plastic spoons, gel food colouring, masking tape and paper.
We put a couple of small pieces of paper over the end of the toilet rolls and secured it with masking tape. We made up some plaster of paris mixture and added some gel food colouring. We used guesswork for the amount of water and the amount of plaster of paris, alternatively if you hate guesswork then use two parts plaster of paris to every one part water. After a good mix little man poured the mixture into the toilet rolls.
We waited for a couple of days for the mixture to completely dry, it may not need this long. We then peeled off the cardboard tubes and here revealed were our super chunky chalks. :)
