Recipe for sidewalk chalk

Filed under: Kids,Parenting,Tips and Tricks — hindumommy @ 7:33 am

You will need

4-5 eggshells,

1 teaspoon flour,

1 teaspoon very hot tap water,

and food coloring (optional).

Wash & dry eggshells. Put into bowl and grind into a powder. A mortar and pestle works fine for this. Discard any large pieces. Place flour and hot water in another bowl and add 1 tablespoon eggshell powder & mix until a paste forms. Add food coloring if desired. Shape & press mixture firmly into the shape of a chalk stick, and roll up tightly in a strip of paper towel. Allow to dry approximately 3 days until hard. Remove paper towel and you’ve got chalk. Eggshell chalk is for sidewalks only. Do not use for any other surface

  1. Why is it that eggshell chalk should be used in sidewalks only and not on boards?
