Camp Bramble Berry Sidewalk Chalk

Camp Bramble Berry's Sidewalk Chalk

Sidewalk chalk is a basic necessity for summer outdoor activities. Your child can play games, practice writing letters and numbers, and create artistic murals all with sidewalk chalk. No messy clean-up; just wait for the rain to wash it away or hose it down with water. Encourage your child’s creativity and make sidewalk chalk.

 
Mixing Sidewalk Chalk
ONE: In a medium size bowl, mix together Kaolin Clay and Tapioca Powder.
TWO: In a separate bowl, mix Arrowroot Powder with Witch Hazel.
THREE: 
Add the undiluted LabColor of your choice to your Arrowroot mixture.

Using Camp Bramble Berry Chalk
Molding Sidewalk Chalk
FOUR: Microwave the Arrowroot and Witch Hazel mixture in 3 second increments, stirring well between each burst until very slightly thickened, but not gummy.
Tip: If gooey chunks appear, you must throw out the mixture and start over. Keep the microwave bursts short and stir frequently.
FIVE: Pour colored mixture over your powdered ingredients and mix gently with a spatula. It will be very crumbly.
Tip:  If your mixture is sticky try adding more Kaolin Clay. 
Sidewalk Chalk in Mold
SIX: Once the mix begins to combine, dig in with gloved hands and work mixture thoroughly by hand.
Tip: This mixing step takes some serious kneading and is pretty messy. Don't get discouraged if it seems really crumbly, just keep working the mixture and work over an easy to clean-up surface.
SEVEN: As needed, spritz mixture with witch hazel. You do not want it to be crumbly, or sticky. Think modeling clay texture.
EIGHT: Press into molds and allow to set out for 24 hours before using.
