Just because summer is over doesn't mean the outdoor fun has to stop. Back to school time is challenging for many parents. Between meet-the-teacher nights, working 9-5, and evening extra curricular, you run out of time to spend with your families, or dare we say, relax yourself!
Here at Sha-Faun enterprises, we know this time of year goes by quickly. We wanted to give you a fun and easy activity you can do with your kids while the weather is still nice enough to get your kids outside— DIY Sidewalk Chalk!
DIY Sidewalk Chalk with Essential Oils
What better way to get your kids involved with the basics of aromatherapy than letting their creative juices flow with some homemade sidewalk chalk that smells just as beautiful as their art looks?
We love the idea of making things at home with your kids. The conversations you'll have with your kids while you teach them to mix and pour while making home crafts are priceless. Here's a way to start adding the basics of aromatherapy to the conversation by using Young Living essential oils while you craft with your kiddos!
DIY Essential Oils Sidewalk Chalk:
Special Note: This recipe is meant for one color. If you're making more than one color, repeat this recipe with new cups and spoons!
For best results, allow your chalk to dry in the molds for 24 hours.
Make sure you mix slowly at first. Otherwise, the plaster powder will go everywhere! At Sha-Faun, we tend to make this chalk outdoors, so we don't have to worry about big mess clean-ups inside.
Like any store-bought sidewalk chalk, this chalk washes away with rain or your hose so that your kids can create their art again and again!
