Oh the magic of sidewalk chalk!  What a great way to get outside on a warm day and get out some creativity.  We also enjoy playing games like hopscotch, tic-tac-toe, hangman, and bean bag toss.  Save a bit of money and add some extra fun to sidewalk chalk this year by making your own.  Here are 8 simple recipes for making sidewalk chalk at home.

1. Chalk Pops

Enjoy a refreshing popsicle while you’re outside with these fun chalk pops!  To make the pops, use Plaster of Paris, tempura paint (the neon colors are particularly awesome), a silicone pop mold, wood craft sticks, plastic cups and plastic spoons. You’ll also need cold water, scissors and measuring cups.  I suggest buying the supplies from Hobby Lobby and/or Michael’s.  Find the instructions for this recipe here.
