What you need
- Plaster of Paris
- Four toilet paper tubes
- Four colors of tempera paint
- Containers to mix in
- Four popsicle sticks
- Wax paper
- Measuring cups
- A spoon
What you'll do
Measure out 1 cup of plaster of Paris and pour it in your mixing bowl.
Add 1/2 cup water to the plaster of Paris.
Measure out 2 tablespoons of tempera paint and add it to the plaster of Paris.
Use your popsicle stick to mix all of the ingredients together. Mix until it becomes a smooth consistency and the color is even throughout.
Tear off a piece of wax paper and use it to cover the bottom of one of the toilet paper rolls.
Use the tape to secure the wax paper to the bottom of the toilet paper roll.
Use a spoon to spoon the plaster of Paris mixture into the toilet paper roll. Fill it to the top and level it out using your spoon.
Set the toilet paper tube in a warm, dry place to harden.
Once the plaster of Paris has dried completely, peel off the cardboard toilet paper tube and create some sidewalk art! Repeat these steps for the remaining three toilet paper tubes.
