Art Activity of the Month! Chalk Popsicles!

Time: 45 min

Supplies: (**Recipe below is per color, make as much as you need per how many colored popsicles you make)

- 1/2 Cup + 3 Tablespoons of Plaster of Paris, - 1/3 Cup of water, few drops of food coloring (or you can also use tempera paint), Popsicle silicone mold (this is the one we used), large popsicle sticks, plastic cups and spoons

1. Gather your materials - plaster, water, food coloring. 

2. Use one plastic cup per color and mix the plaster and water until a paste forms, it will resemble frosting. Mix in the food coloring until you get the desired color you like.

3. Using a plastic spoon, place the plaster mix inside the mold, add a popsicle stick in the middle, placing down as far as possible. 

4. After 45 minutes, the popsicle chalks were hard enough to take out of the silicone molds. Allow them to dry upright in a cup until they are completely hardened. We did end up using them just a few hours after they were made, but you could wait until the next day to make absolutely sure. 


 
We wanted to take a moment to congratulate new matches!
