This new Process Art activity is our new hit! Who would know we can use sugar to help brighten up the color of the chalk and bring out the best colors children can enjoy.
This activity helps kids to see the difference between using dry chalk and sugar chalk for coloring. The first step is to try dry chalk first and use their fingers to smudge the colors. Most children find this step very calming and satisfying because most of the time students are not allow to touch or smudge the paint.
Then we soak chalk into sugar water to enhance the colors and to avoid smudging effect. This technique helps chalk dust to stick together and stay on the paper.
Check out the photos from our sugar chalk session. Love all the colors and texture my students created.
