DIY Sidewalk Paint!

Summer is in full effect and being outside is on the brain! So, I wanted to do a project that’s perfect for this outdoor weather. I also had plenty of chalk left over from our 4th of July Candle Luminaries project and I wanted to do something different with it. After looking around the internet a bit, I came across a Dollar Tree project that fit the bill perfectly…

DIY Sidewalk Paint

Here’s what you need:

  • Chalk pieces
  • Plastic sandwich bags
  • Rolling Pin (stepping on the bags works too)
  • Plastic cups
  • Water
  • Paintbrush

The first thing you want to do is find some pieces of chalk. You can use a whole piece if you like, this is just a great project to reuse old bits of chalk with.


Place the chalk scraps into a plastic bag (assort by color).

Use a rolling pin (or your foot) and crush the chalk to make a powder.



Add your powdered chalk to a plastic cup and add a few drops of water (pour slowly; the less water there is, the more colorful the paint).


Swirl the cup around to dissolve the chalk.

That’s it! You’ve just made sidewalk paint!


Hand a paintbrush to your little one and let them have at it!

This is SUCH an easy DIY!! It will provide hours of outdoor fun for the kids and it makes for easy cleanup. Pour a little water over the day’s art and it will simply wash away!

Thanks for reading! I hope you and your family have fun making all sorts of creations with your sidewalk paint!

Please remember to like, share, tweet, and pin this post. 😉


  1. My grandkids and I love grabbing our side walk chalk and heading to the huge parking lot next door when it is empty. This is a wonderful idea that I cannot wait and share with my grandkids……..I think they are going to dig it!! Thank you for sharing.
