Sidewalk Chalk!

Well, I still haven't found my camera cord, so I have decided to post about our fun afternoon with sidewalk chalk from last week.

Colby received a great bucket of sidewalk chalk for his second birthday in June, but we had never played with it. I found it in the storage closet last week and realized we really needed to get it out on such a beautiful day. Coloring and drawing are two of Colby's favorite things to do, so I knew he was going to love this. And he did! Of course he liked watching me draw things almost more than doing it himself. We did a chalk outline of Chloe and me, but he didn't want to lay down on the driveway. I have to say, I forgot how hard it is to draw with those fat chunks of chalk. Anyway, we had a great time. I then decided to draw hopscotch. I showed Colby how to do it, then took pictures. It was so funny watching a two year old who can't jump try to hopscotch. In the picture you can see how hard he was concentrating (notice the stuck out tongue).

Of course Chloe couldn't really participate, but she thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the sun in her swing.

UPDATE: I found my camera cord!!! A new post will be coming tomorrow. :)

That looks like fun!! :)

I loved to use my sidewalk chalks when I was little.
My granny used to tell me that, if the weather was instable, if the sky was giving signs of coming rain, all we had to do was to draw a big pretty sun on the sidewalk, and the sun would come come back, 'cause he loved to see himself!
So we always "callled for the sun" with big drawings on the sidewalk! Would you believe that it usually worked?? =D Childhood magic! xoxo
