This will be a lot of fun! You have to have JUMBO chalk like this for kids to write and draw on the sidewalk or driveway because when the chalk wears down, it's too small to safely use. Their hands and fingers get too close to the concrete surface. I didn't know you could make chalk from plaster of paris!
