10+ Different Sidewalk Chalk and Paint Recipes

10+ DIY Chalk and Paint Recipes that are super easy to make and your kids will love! From www.overthebigmoon.com!

Hey friends! During the summer we generally try to do any outdoor activities in the morning while it’s still somewhat cooler outside. Then in the afternoon sometimes I can get my 3 year old to fall asleep and my older kids will do quiet time! For me quiet time basically means them doing an activity that doesn’t require my help, so that I can try to fit in a little work time or house cleaning time! One the days that Dylan doesn’t fall asleep, then we’ll do a project or activity that needs moms help! My boys are obsessed with doing art projects and so we’ve been playing around with lots of different chalk and paint recipes this summer! They’ll go outside and draw on the concrete and run through the sprinkler! 

Today I am sharing with you some of our favorite recipes, plus a few that are on our list to try! Check them out! 

Sidewalk Chalk Pops from Project Nursery

This recipe is a very standard chalk recipe! I love the molds that Grey used to make her “pops!”

Frozen Popsicle Chalk from Reading Confetti

I love this recipe, because having the ice chalk on the popsicle sticks really helps little hands not get so messy! Plus, the wet look it leaves on the ground is pretty rad!



Homemade Sidewalk Chalk Paint from All in All

My kids love this recipe, because they have a little bit more control of their art work because they use paint brushes! However, if you have little little kids this doesn’t work as well, because they may dump the containers of paint out.

Erupting Sidewalk Chalk by Learn Play Imagine

I have boys and they love anything the fizzes! So, they loved using this recipe and then spraying it with vinegar!

Sidewalk Chalk BOMBS from Growing a Jeweled Rose

We’ve been saving this recipe for a day when we can really make a day of it! I can already tell it’s going to be a good time!

Glow in the Dark Chalk from Growing a Jeweled Rose

In my opinion, anything glow in the dark is extra fun! Amiright? My kids loved doing this last week! And, I am totally going to make some red, white and blue glow in the dark for the holiday fun this month!



Spray Splatter Chalk from Cutting Tiny Bites

My kids loved this and it sprays off the ground super easy! Don’t be shocked if your kiddos spray each other either! haha!



Homemade Puffy Paint from Eze Breezy

My older kids liked doing this, but it was a little hard for my 3 year old. Be prepared for a mess if you’re including littles! I personally will probably just do this again with my older boys if Dylan is napping!



Kids Squirt Paint from Over the Big Moon

 This is an activity that we love to do as a family! We all work on a “masterpiece” and then put it up in one of the boys room for a while! 



Homemade Flour Paint from Playdough to Plato

This paint is so fun! It has a very cool look to it and is really fun when painting with objects! We love to make this on REALLY hot days when we need an inside activity!



Homemade Finger Paints from Over the Big Moon

This recipe is super quick and fun! I love making this for my youngest, because it doesn’t transfer to the skin and is a really clean up!


Do you have any other recipes that I should know about? I hope you have a great rest of the summer friends!
