Mud and Chalk Painting

What happens when you mix...
...grated chalk...

(The children helped me grate the chalk)

..a little mud...
and a little water together? 

Fabulous, textured paint! 
We used recycled butter cups to hold the paint, small paint brushes, and  cut-up cardboard squares. 

It works great on side-walks too!
The end results: 

The cardboard squares make a beautiful display, along with some pictures of the activity.

Happy playing!
