Chalk Paint

Chalk Paint recipe

Chalk can be all kinds of fun for children but what about chalk paint? Never heard of it? I hadn’t heard either of it till I ran across it on Pinterest and book marked it for future use. We tried it out this weekend and it really was a lot of fun. It was definitely messy but easy to wash off. Older children would have a blast and it wouldn’t be quite as messy.

Chalk paint

 I think the colors turned out great
When it dried it looked exactly like chalk
Yes, she did try to put it in her mouth and succeeded! :) Luckily it is non toxic!
 This was a really fun activity. If you are looking for a twist on chalk this would be a great one to try. It was very messy but washed off very easily. Isabella had a blast, this is definitely something we will do again!
If you try it out, let us know how it goes!
