Make some homemade chalk for the kids to play with.
1 cup Plaster of Paris
1 - ½ cup of water
Tempera paint (A spoonful or two of each color chalk you want to make.)
Egg carton or toilet paper tubes (You'll need enough toilet paper tubes for each color of chalk you're making.)
A bowl (One you don't mind getting dirtied up with Plaster of Paris and paint!)
1...Mix Plaster of Paris and water together in a bowl.
2...Stir in a couple of teaspoons of a single color of paint.
3...Pour the mixture into the egg carton (enough to fill up an entire compartment) or into a toilet paper tube which you've taped closed on one end.
4...Allow to dry overnight.
5...Remove the chalk from the egg carton or peel away the cardboard toilet paper tube.
