You heard me right. Changes colors. Think primary color mix up. Blue and yellow? - Green. Red and yellow? - Orange. 

Let's look at the equation:

Magic + Preschoolers = Serious Entertainment

How I made this for my boys was simple, but required a little set up.

The following is an Amazon Affiliate supply list, because that is so much easier than running to Publix just for 5 ingredients.

HOW TO MIX THE CHALK:

Thanks to, Growing a Jeweled Rose, I followed her simple instructions on how to make this magic chalk. See her post for detailed instructions.

What is My Preschooler Learning? 

  • Chemistry - Why is this happening? 
  • Inquiry - What will happen when we mix these two colors?
  • Fine Motor - Squeezing the bottles (helps with handwriting strength)
  • Predictions - I think I can make purple using these colors! 
  • Process Art

I LOVE activities with chalk!

Sometimes, we work on prewriting with movement using chalk, sometimes we use chalk to practice number sense, and other times we love chalk SO much, that we paint the entire wall using chalkboard paint. 

You can also make candy canes fizz! See here from Teaching Mama!
