Make DIY Squirt Chalk for Summer Fun With the Kids: It's So Easy!

Get outside with your kids and make your own squirt chalk! It's really simple to make and your kids will love it! You’ll need:

  • cornstarch
  • baking soda
  • food coloring
  • 3 squirt bottles

Here’s how to make it:

Fill the squirt bottles 2/3 of the way with a baking soda and cornstarch mixture (about 3 tablespoons of each). Add a few drops of food coloring to each bottle, then fill them the rest of the way with water (you want one for red, yellow and blue). Use a small stick or plastic knife to stir the chalk, and then place the cap on and shake the bottles well.

Squirt the bottles on the sidewalk with your kiddos to make cool chalk designs!
