Chalk Making Science Experiment

I love a good deal on science experiments. I found one this summer at Kids Woot (bookmark this site and check it daily, you will thank me). I got 3 complete science kits delivered for under $15. We worked on one the other day. Each kit has multiple science experiments. We worked on the Colors one. We mixed colors with dye tablets and water, and then made sidewalk chalk with the colors we made.

The directions were easy to follow, and the kids were able to do almost all of the measuring, mixing, and pouring themselves.

Zhara and Winnie mixed the colors. Then we incorporated the colors into the water and plaster mixture we made, and filled molds with our concoction.

Angus carried the molds to the cabinet for drying. He was a little nervous of dropping it -- note his eyes.

Then, the next day, we got to use our own homemade sidewalk chalk. Awesome science project!
