Squeeze chalk can be pretty messy which makes it the perfect art project to do outside. The chalk is easily hosed away, but if your kids are like mine they’ll scrape it all off the ground once it’s dry and sculpt with it.
To make one bag of squeeze chalk you need:
1/2 C cornstarch
2 Tbsp white flour
4-6 drops food coloring
1/3 c water
zipper bag, sandwich size or larger
Drop the food coloring into the bowl.
Pour the cornstarch, flour, and water into the bowl in that order.
Use a fork to mix everything, this takes some muscle! You want the consistency of the chalk to be similar to that of cake batter. Add more water 1/2 teaspoon at a time if the mixture is to thick. If it’s too thin add more cornstarch one teaspoon at a time.
Pour the chalk mixture into the bag and seal. Cut off a bit of the corner of the bag so your child can squeeze it out.
