FREE Summer Idea #6- Plaster of Paris

Creating the Homemade Plaster of Paris

Measure six cups of flour into a large mixing bowl. Add four cups of water and stir until no lumps of flour are present. This will take several minutes. This mixture should be thick and hard to stir, if it is too watery add a little more flour and if it is too think add a little more water.

  • Homemade Sidewalk Chalk- Fill each space in an empty egg carton with plaster, add different colours of food colouring and let dry. Once dry, pop and and voila homemade sidewalk chalk!
  • Sand prints- Go to the beach or your sandbox, wet the sand and place your child's feet or hands in the sand making an imprint. Fill the imprint with shells or rocks and the plaster. Let dry and remove from sand, creating 3D hands and or feet prints.
