Side Walk Chalk

Monday afternoons are sluggish days for me... mostly because it's the day I am a counselor for part of the day and a mommy for the rest.  Today when I got home I was half tempted to turn on the "tv nanny" and curl up on the couch and take a little mommy nap.... But the summer is only here to stay for a few more months. So, I thought we'd go outside and cross something off our summer list. With not a lot of time to plan something extravagant today- we spent the afternoon creating art on our sidewalk. It was energizing! Summer is not Summer with out sidewalk chalk. 

 Ideas for chalk:
-See who can wash away their drawing the fastest with a squirt gun
-Dip them in water to make chalk paste
-Write out a secret and spray it away with the hose
-Create a Mandala 
-Trace your body, hand or foot
-Write a love note for someone to find
