Grated Chalk and Water Art

Use water and chalk to make a swirled piece of art!

You need:



Pan of water


1)  Fill a pan (large enough to hold a sheet of paper) with water.  Grate a variety of colored-chalk into the water.

2)  Allow the chalk to sit and “swirl” for a few minutes.  Gently place a sheet of paper on top of the water.

3)  Carefully remove from the water and allow to dry.

My oldest remarked that hers looked “all swirly — kind of like Van Gogh’s paintings!”
