Puffy Sidewalk Chalk Paint

Updated: 6 days ago

We made some Puffy Sidewalk Chalk Paint with the kids as a way to spend some time outdoors creating art on the sidewalk in front of our house!

Puffy Sidewalk Chalk Paint


1/3 cup flour

1/3 cup water

1 tsp liquid dish soap (I used Dawn)

1/2 stick of sidewalk chalk, crushed

Plastic baggie for crushing chalk

Hammer for crushing chalk

Small bowl for mixing ingredients

Knife and cutting board for cutting chalk


Scissors (some of the paint was too thick for the holes in the bottle so I cut the tip off a little to make the hole bigger.)

Note: This recipe is for making 1 color of chalk. Repeat this recipe as many times for as many colors of chalk as you want.

  1. Cut your sidewalk chalk in half and place it in a plastic baggie.

  2. On a hard surface like the sidewalk, use the hammer to crush the piece of sidewalk chalk into a powder.

3. In a bowl, mix together the flour, water, soap, and chalk powder. Stir until well combined.

4. Using a funnel, pour the mixture into squeezable containers.

5. Repeat steps as many times as needed to create several different chalk colors.

Have fun creating art! The kids loved writing and drawing with our new paint.
