Sidewalk Chalk...




Please tell me that I am not the only one to get excited over new art supplies!

We bought a brand new box of sidewalk chalk at the store today!  Since it was such a large box, we divided it up and I am saving half to replenish our chalk stash later in the summer.  We have a slate walkway to our front door, and it is wonderful for drawing with chalk...  so much more satisfying than regular concrete or blacktop!  

I am looking forward to going through all of our outside toys and tidying up a bit.  We have a lovely hideaway for the little ones in the backyard that will be the perfect spot for their little picnic table and sandbox once it is cleaned up.  I think that it was the previous owner's impromptu potting area and so it is quite messy.  I think it would also be a great spot for a mud pie kitchen!  We'll see what happens.  We're reaching the end of the construction road and I am looking forward to that all being done so that we can focus on settling into this house a bit more.

What lovely pictures! I need to get some new sidewalk chalk too. I don't have the patience to make it. :P

This looks like really beautiful art chalk -- where did you come across it? My girls love to make chalk cities in the driveway -- houses, public buildings, roads, street signs. But we've never seen such an array of colors as this.

It is Crayola Sidewalk chalk. We found it in the crayon section at Target! I believe that there are 52 sticks inside.

Thanks! I'll have to check it out.

We did find it at Target, and used some to draw a rainforest in the driveway Sunday. Thanks again.
