Wet chalk painting!


Sidewalk chalk in water

Have you tried painting with wet chalk? When my daughter was little she used to love dropping chalk into buckets of water. It actually used to drive me crazy, I would think, Oh no, she's ruining all the chalk. But in reality she was discovering a new way to work with an old material. Now we embrace wet chalk.


When I was an art teacher after doing a chalk project I used to be left with a box full of dirty mismatched chalk and never knew what to do with it. Well this is what you should do with it!
