easter crafts: part three, sidewalk chalk

i also bought some sidewalk chalk and i suppose i could have included it in the art kit, but it didn’t really fit and i didn’t want to get chalk dust all over everything, plus, i found this great idea online of how to package sidewalk chalk as party favors and just had to try it for myself.  i didn’t have the fancy stripey or polka-dot chalk, but i still think they turned out pretty cute!  they remind me of saltwater taffy.  the process was incredibly fast and easy, but in case you’d like a little more detailed instruction, here’s a photo tutorial:

tear off pieces of wax paper about 3″ wider than the length of your chalk, then cut or tear these pieces in half, across the short width.

roll each piece of chalk in one of these (almost square) pieces of wax paper.

then, just twist the ends and you’re done!
