Epic School Color Powder Events

School color powder events are a unique and fun way to get students outside creating friendships, making memories, and releasing stress! Whether it’s a "concert for a cause," color 5K race, color war, tailgate party, Homecoming game, or a graduation party, participants love getting colorful.  

Chameleon Colors knows how to turn ordinary school activities into epic parties. We do this by supplying high quality, non-toxic color powder as well as offering our color experts to help you plan your event with the information, products, and services you need to make your big day successful. Here are some steps our customers have followed to create amazing school events:

The Right Preparation

Proper planning makes a big difference. Your well-planned preparation will serve as a guide in making your event a memorable and enjoyable one. Don’t forget to post announcements and gather all the necessary permits from the school administration. And of course—don’t forget to include colored powder from Chameleon Colors on your list of things to take your event to the next level!

The Color Equation

One of our most frequently asked questions is, "How much color powder do I need for my event?" It's a good thing you're planning a school event, because we have the perfect equation for you!

You'll need .75 -1 LB of color powder per person for a color fight 
6 - .75 LB of color powder per person for a color run

Getting Participants Involved

The purpose of school events is to give students and staff more time outside of school to interact and have a good time. Celebrating school pride with color powder is a great way to create lasting memories with peers and teachers! From our experience, we've learned that lively crowds make an event extra special. If you’re looking for great ideas on how to keep the crowd engaged, try a color throw at the end or beginning of your event, using extra color packets as cool prizes throughout the event, and having fun music.

Color Powder is Easy to Clean

First and foremost, we recommend only using Chameleon Colors color powders outdoors. For color powder remaining on grass after an event, the powder should disappear with water (such as water from sprinklers, hose, or a rainstorm). Our powder is eco-friendly and will not harm the environment. Any color on sidewalks or pavement should be blown away (a leaf blower would work great) or brushed away first. Then, any remaining powder can be washed away with a hose or power washer.  

For hair, skin and clothing, the easiest way to get color powder off is while it’s still dry. So, shake, wiggle, jump up and down, and brush it off the best you can. After that, use soap and water for the skin and shampoo for the hair. Chameleon Colors color powder is not intended to stain or dye clothing. For best results removing the color, brush off as much of the powder as you can before it gets wet. Then, wash the clothes on a regular wash cycle or hand wash the affected area until the color comes out. While our colors are not intended to stain, when large concentrations of the powders are mixed with water, the dyes can stain—especially on white clothing.
