Super easy set up for hours of fun. A twist on the traditional sidewalk chalk


  • Assorted Chalk Colours
  • Mortar and Pestle

  1. Using your mortar and pestle crush each colour and place in individual bowls
  2. Add water to the chalk and stir until combined
  3. Using a different brush for each colour let your child paint the sidewalk. Lots of fun

  • Fabulous idea. A simple yet creative crafty idea for the kids.


  • Great ides, plus the preparation could be part of the fun, getting my oldest involved to help before all the kids get stuck into making masterpieces!

  • Looks like a fun afternoon activity for when the sun is shining


  • Great idea. I will do it with my kids tomorrow.

  • Original idea mixing them with water! My daughter used to make a lot of drawing on our driveaway. What a pity the rain washed them away!

    • A long driveway and chalk provides hours of fun!


  • An interesting twist on chalk painting, would love to try.
