Turn leftover pieces of sidewalk chalk into DIY Powder Paint and use it for a variety of other projects. My preschooler loves sidewalk chalk, and we have buckets of it around the house.
This simple trick can give new life to those old pieces of chalk — all you need is a cheese grater!
DIY Powder Paint
Here’s what you need to make DIY Powder Paint:
- Sidewalk Chalk
- Cheese Grater
- White paper
The process really is simple — just run your sidewalk chalk along the cheese grater to grind it into powder. We make ours over sheets of white paper to make it easy to transfer the powder into ziplock bags.
Once you’ve made your DIY Powder Paint, it’s time to get down to business! Our favorite thing to do with powder paint is to add it to Cloud Dough.
