Hi, Sandy. It's as simple as it sounds. Great for elementary. Scrap off
chalk shavings into water. Lay paper on carefully and pull up. The only
down-side to this lesson is that you can only get two/maybe three really
good prints before you have to re-do the shavings again. The first shavings
sink to the bottom of the water container so you're always having to
re-shave. Kids don't mind though. This way you can get lots of variation in
the color schemes. I usually get chalk dust from the finished product so I
spray them with my...guess what?! Toodles....Bunki
