Easy Easter Craft for Kids ~ Painting with Chalk and Water
Today we are revisiting a a super easy activity…painting with chalk and water! Did you see our super easy Wet Chalk Drawing activity? We love simple ideas that use things we already have at home.
Chalk is a versatile drawing medium. We love drawing on sidewalks, chalkboards, paper and wood chips. For a simple twist on a classic activity…just add water. The texture of the chalk changes and if feels almost like you are painting.

Soak your chalk in a bowl of water. Use the tape to create a cross shape on your paper. encourage the kiddos to use the wet chalk to paint/color colorful designs on their paper.
Wet chalk has a consistency similar to paint and the colors will appear richer and deeper than dry chalk. You kids will be intrigued when it glides smoothly across the paper leaving a beautiful thick paste.
Allow the chalk and paper are dry before gently removing the tape. Wet paper rips easily, so try to remove the tape slowly to minimize and tearing.
This simple activity is perfect for kids of all ages. Preschoolers right on up to school aged kids. There are so many possibilities for what they can create.
I love how these simple drawing turned out! Perfect for Easter!
