Make Your Own Glitter Chalk Review (The Orb Factory)

What It Is

With Make Your Own Glitter Chalk, kids can mix, mold, and create 16 colorful chalk with glitter accents. The kit comes with four butterfly molds, four flower molds, two bags of plaster, four bright liquid colors, four fun glitter colors, eight stir sticks, and eight paper cups. Kids follow the instructions to combine plaster, water, color, and glitter into one of the molds. Kids can use one color or get creative and mix multiple colors in one chalk piece. Let it dry overnight, and then once dry, turn the mold upside down to remove the chalk. Then take it outside to draw colorful and sparkly chalk creations.

Is It Fun?

This glitter chalk works well, although the glitter pieces aren't really part of the chalk. They just sort of fall off as kids use the chalk and leave sparkles around kids' art creations instead of being a part of the creation. But the glitter does sparkle really well, which kids will like. And kids will also like using chalk pieces that they made themselves. This kit offers creativity both indoors and outdoors.

Who It’s For

Make Your Own Glitter Chalk is for ages 6 and up. Adult supervision is required.

What To Be Aware Of

It took us 30 minutes to mix and mold four chalk pieces (not including the overnight drying time), and the instructions were good.
