Do you know how to make your own sidewalk chalk? It’s easier than you think!
We have made sidewalk chalk many times before and now we have come up with a glow in the dark sidewalk chalk recipe. It may be the most fun yet!
How to Make Glow in the Dark Sidewalk Chalk
(affiliate links included for your convenience)
- 1 cup of Plaster of Paris
- 1/2 cup of water
- 3 tablespoons bright green food coloring gel or a couple drops of liquid watercolors
- 4 tablespoons Glow-in-the-Dark Paint
- petroleum jelly
- ice cube tray
- bucket or jar you no longer need
- wooden spoon
Coat the ice cube tray lightly with the petroleum jelly and set aside. Mix the Plaster of Paris, the water, the food coloring, and the glow in a container that you were going to get rid or or recycle because you won’t be able to use it again.
Spoon the chalk mixture into the ice cube tray and place in a cool dry place to dry over night. When the chalk is completely dry it is ready to use!
When your sidewalk chalk is ready go outside and draw! Glow in the dark sidewalk chalk has a fun glow to it when it’s dark and is a lot of fun for kids.
