Sidewalk Chalk


  • sidewalk chalk
  • water
  • large paint brush


Kids can create unique “watercolour images” with sidewalk chalk and water!

  1. To create the chalk and water paintings, simply decorate the area (sidewalk, driveway or patio stone) with chalk.
  2. For each drawing, have the kids cover as much of the area as possible.
  3. Float water across the drawings using a large paint brush. This is a great way to use those old paintbrushes that are too scruffy to use for home-decorating projects anymore.

The water on chalk effect can make for some beautiful designs
