Fun with Sidewalk Chalk


Have you ever wondered what happens when you mix sprinklers, sidewalk chalk and my Little Chefs?……… Hours of Fun with Sidewalk Chalk and colorful creations that don’t just end up on the sidewalk – it ends up everywhere!

On one hot afternoon, Chef Dad was outside working in the yard and fixing sprinkler problems that caused a flood in our basement last winter (and that story would be an entire blog post on its own!!!) The Little Chefs decided they wanted to run through the sprinklers –  so on went their swimsuits. And now looking back, I am so glad they changed their clothes – most of the time they start running through the sprinklers in whatever they have on!

As the sprinkler fun started to wear off – Little Chef K brought out our big tub of Sidewalk Chalk. The Little Chefs started drawing fun pictures on the driveway and sidewalks, when all of a sudden they were sprayed with the sprinklers! At first they were upset that their pictures were being ruined by the water…….but then, realized what was just created!!! Sidewalk Chalk PAINT!!!!

This Sidewalk Chalk paint kept them busy for quite a while!! The had discovered not only could they make the sidewalk and driveways bright and colorful – they could also make themselves BRIGHT and colorful!! This is now one of our favorite summertime  activities!!

I am a mom to Five Little Chefs who love to cook and create anything with their hands. Watching over 10 additional hands keeps me busy but is so much fun! We laugh and cry everyday, but then want to do it again the next day. That is how we know we are enjoying life!
