How-To: Giant Homemade Sidewalk Chalk

This homemade sidewalk chalk tutorial that Michelle from Modern Handmade Child shared on Oh My Handmade looks like a ton of crafty fun! The jumbo pieces of chalk are perfect for little hands, and look like they’d last through days and days of creative sidewalk play, even with the post prolific chalk artist.

One of our favorite outside activities at our home is drawing with chalk on the driveway. You can play hopscotch, four-square, and of course draw and create silly stories. My daughters and I were talking one day as we played hopscotch about how to make chalk and I thought to myself, let’s try it! It ended up being quite a lot of fun.
