Making Chalk is so easy! It's an activity that is so fun to make with your kids. The only drawback is that you have to wait for this to fully dry before you use it, but it's so worth the wait.
What You Need
Behind the scenes with molds: You can use just about anything around the house like: candy molds, paper cups, toilet paper tubes with tinfoil at the end, and muffin tins. Have fun with it!
What to do

Double Note: Be sure to be patient as the chalk does need plenty of time to harden and set before you use them. Take a look at our article about Chalkboard Paint Uncovered!
