My kids love to create and explore with sidewalk chalk!  We have come up with all sorts of chalk recipes over the years, but this next activity is one of our absolute favorites!  If it is hot where you are this icy-cold chalk will be the biggest hit in town!

Materials

Method
  • Begin by combining equal parts of baking soda and corn starch in a bowl.
  • Once well mixed carefully spoon the mixture into ice cube trays, filling each slot roughly 1/2 way.
  • Add a few drops of food coloring to each ice slot.
  • Now, add water to the ice tray and carefully mix until all ingredients are combined.
  • Pop your chalk in the freezer, and in 4-6 hours the fun can begin!

Ice Chalk Play
Grab the kids and head outside where they will have a blast making icy works of art, and handing the ice is a great way for kids to cool off on a hot day!

My girls loved watching the chalk colors mix as their icy creations melted.

Then, after a bit of play I gave them spray bottles of vinegar, and they had a blast spraying their art, making colorful eruptions all over the pavement.

They played & played until all of the ice was melted, and then they immediately asked to make more!  At this point I gave them paint brushes, and they continued to make art in the melted chalk for quite some time.
