  2. Using a disposable stir-stick, stir in most, but NOT all, of the water.
  3. Add 2 tbsp of the liquid tempera paint, mixing well, especially at the bottom; add another tbsp of paint if you think it needs it.

  6. Peel paper off after the chalk dries, give to the kids, and let them have fun; outside, of course!
