Homemade Watercolor Chalk Spray

We love things homemade! So, let’s whip up a few batches of homemade chalk in spray bottles today! This watercolor-like version is fun, simple, and super crafty!

Materials Needed{per batch}

  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 10-15 drops of food coloring
  • 1/2  cup warm water

What’s Next:



  1. Just add all the ingredients in a bottle, shake, and spray! It’s that simple! Below is {1} batch — made a small amount, so we did {3} batches per bottle.




{note} The chalk spray will stain clothes, carpets, and or anything that food coloring would typically stain.  As always with play, adult supervision is required.

For a brighter, thicker, more paint-like version, try this recipe I found at crust, crafts, and curriculum.
