Sidewalk Chalk Paint - Part One

We have been loving experimenting with Chalk this summer. Play Create Explore gave us a wonderful idea that took zero planning. Everything was ready to go in the garage!

Items Needed
Paint Brush

Step 1: Take the hammer and crush a piece of chalk on cardboard box.
Step 2: Mix chalk dust and water together in a cup. Adding a little bit of water at a time until all chalk is dissolved.

Step 3: Paint Away!

This was one of our favorite outdoor activities all summer. The kids loved painting one day then spraying their pictures with a spray bottle the next. We also painted the cars and then had a car wash. Not to mention all the fun we had writing letters with chalk paint on the driveway!


If you are reading this post then you must be one of the very first to stumble upon my blog! Thanks for reading! I have the privilege to be able to stay home with my little girl along with teaching and caring for a wonderful group of kids for the past three years. Early Childhood is my passion and I love sharing ideas with others but it has been hard to do so here at home. I hope this blog will be a great way for me to share what we are doing here at Lighthouse Learning Center with families who have entrusted their children to me along with other childcare providers.

I am so thankful to have a loving husband who supports me in doing what I do everyday! If it was not for him Lighthouse Learning Center would not be possible!
