Below we discuss ways you can use chalk paint, offer free stencil packs you can download, and give you step-by-step instructions for making your own homemade chalk paint.

Fun Ways to Use Chalk Paint

The whole family, no matter what age your kids are, can enjoy chalk paint! You can use it outside on your sidewalk or driveway or even indoors on a chalkboard sign. Here are some ideas for ways you can use your chalk paint indoors and outdoors.

On a driveway or sidewalk:

  • Design games to play, such as four square or hopscotch
  • Paint animals, people, and places (use our shape stencils!)
  • Create constellation art (we have star stencils!)
  • Offer support for a movement or cause
  • Practice counting or spelling with younger kids (use our letters & number stencils!)

On a chalkboard sign:

  • Write a joke to keep everyone smiling
  • Showcase what’s for dinner
  • Write a motivational or inspirational message (use our ampersand and leaf stencils!)
  • Start a countdown to an important date (use our number stencils!)
  • Paint a pretty picture
