How to Make Chalk Sculptures


Material Needed




How To

Get a piece of chalk…any size…although I would say younger children would have an easier time with a thicker piece of chalk though.  Scrape away unwanted portions of blackboard chalk with a pin, Work slowly, exerting very little pressure so that chalk will not crumble.
