Now that the weather has taken a turn for the beautiful, I am constantly looking for fun outdoor activities to do with my daughter and her friends. Sidewalk chalk is a long-time favorite at our house, and I came across this super easy idea which makes that old, sort of boring activity new (and messy!)
For this activity, you need some chalk (sidewalk or regular), water, and small containers or spray bottles. Using a hammer or flat rock, crush the chalk into a fine powder in a plastic container. Mix a little bit of water in at a time until you get it to the consistency of watercolor paint.
You will want it to be pretty runny, it’s very hard for children to paint with thicker paints. You can either let the kids use sponge brushes, paint brushes, or for fun variety – put the paint into spray bottles and let them “airbrush” the driveway.
