This one is perfect for the Summer! It's nice to offer a different medium to create with, other than the usual chalk , crayons, or markers. Mason is familiar with chalk and this activity just added a twist to the usual. The suggested length of this activity is 15 minutes, which is exactly about how long Mason lasted before he was up playing in his sand table.
Wet Chalk Pastels
- Sidewalk chalk in various colors
- Dark colored construction paper. (I used black.)
- 1 cup water
Once the chalk is wet, show your child how to color on the paper - don't press too hard or the paper will tear.
The wet chalk will look like pastel paints!
