Supplies: Newspaper, Plaster of Paris, Water, Powdered Tempera Paint, small mixing bowl, small (3-4oz) Dixie cups
Cover work space with newspaper
In medium mixing bowl mix 1 cup Plaster of Paris with ¾ cup water
Stir until well blended
Add 3-4 tablespoons of powdered tempera paint, stir until well blended.
Pour mixture into dixie cups (fill cups about ¾ full) (Each color of mixture will give you 3-4 cups of chalk)
Let mixture set for 1-2 hours, then peel off the dixie cup & enjoy the fun!!
