Crushed Chalk Potions

Today we crushed chalk a few different ways to use in "potion" making!

First we used a mortar and pestle, which was neat and did the job, but we decided using a plastic bag and a softhead hammer was more fun, and more efficient!

We added some glitter of the same colors, and then the fun began!

Martini anyone? :)
I thought our plastic martini glasses (aren't we fancy?! lol) would be fun "potion" mixer glasses.
