Thanks to Lakeshore Learning, I have a great step-by-step, easy tutorial to share with you today on how to make your own sidewalk chalk!  Scroll down for a great coupon to Lakeshore as well!
(FYI, I have no affiliation to Lakeshore, I just like them!)

Twice the fun: The making, and the drawing!

You will need:

Plaster of paris
Lakeshore Fully Washable Liquid Tempera - Pints (or another washable tempera paint)
Craft Sticks
Paper cups


Pour 1 cup of plaster of paris into your bowl.

With a craft stick, stir in 2 heaping spoonfuls of washable tempera paint.

Slowly stir in water until the mixture is thick and pasty.

Pour the mixture into paper cups. Set aside to dry for a few hours.

When your chalk is completely dry, tear away the paper cups. Your chalk is ready to use—to create sidewalk art that washes right off!
