   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           plaster of paris -- (do not pack)
                         almost 1/2 cup cool water
                         Liquid tempera paint in various colors
                         Margarine tubs or other disposable mixing
                         Disposable molds
                         (we used toilet paper rolls with tape
                         covering one end to make a cup"
 Pour plaster into a container.  Using a disposable stick, stir in most
 of the water.  Add 2 or 3 tablespoons of liquid tempera, mixing well,
 especially at the bottom.  Add a little more water so the mixture
 thickens, stir well, and pour into the molds.  Remove the molds after
 the chalk is completely dry.
 Have fun

 NOTES : This stuff won't work on chalkboards, it’s too hard, but it works great
 on sidewalks and lasts MUCH longer than store bought stuff.  I made it
 for christmas presents this year for kids, and it worked great!
 Warning: this is a fun and messy project
