Chalkin' it up
If you're throwing an outdoor birthday blast this year, consider checking out Mad Maggie Designs' neat DIY idea for making homemade sidewalk chalk.
Certainly one party treat that's sure to entertain your artsy party guests long after the event has ended, this homemade chalk is easy and inexpensive to make. To get started, you'll want to have toilet paper tubes or desired molds on hand, along with Plaster of Paris, water, a variety of tempera paint, wax paper and duct tape. Mama Leslie also notes that you can even make your own glow-in-the-dark chalk, which would be a fun idea for summer evenings.
