Chalk + Water + Pavement = Fun!
Get outside when the sun’s out and make some chalk drawings with a difference.
These drawings will wash away with the rain or a spray of a hose.
Warning: Kids will love getting their hands and feet in so wear old clothes and be prepared for messy play. Yay!
All you need is:
Pavement chalk (BIG fat chalks)
A bucket of water
Your hands or some paintbrushes
What to do:
Soak some chalk in a bucket of water for a few minutes.
Find some pavement to draw on.
Draw on to the pavement with chalks, like you normally would.
Next comes the magic to turn it into paint: wet your hands or dip your paintbrush into some water and add water to your drawing. It’ll fill in all the blanks and look like a real painting.
Watch what happens as the chalks dry: your paintings will magically change colour.
Adding more chalks on top to colour mix.
Dragging the paintbrush or your finger through the different coloured wet chalk to make patterns.
Grab a broom (ask a grown up!) and brush across your paintings and it will ‘feather’ and blend them.
