Watery Chalk

Kids Crafts

You have a creative child. Or you want to encourage your child's natural inclination to want to be creative. This simple project can open up your kiddo's eyes to what can be done with a little chalk, some paper and with adult supervision, a little liquid starch. The end result is satisfying for both you and your child and something you'll want to keep for a long time.

What you'll need:

  • Colored chalk
  • White drawing paper
  • Liquid starch
  • Paintbrush

What to do:
There are two ways to do this project:
  1. Draw a picture on the paper with the chalk, then with the paintbrush, brush liquid starch over it.
  2. Or, dip the paper into the liquid starch first and then draw on the wet paper. Either way, the pictures end up beautiful.
Have fun and watch your child's delight grow by creating something beautiful.
