It wasn't exactly summer for a few more days but that didn't stop my grandkids and me from enjoying one of the simplest and easiest projects for grandkids of almost any age. Kids' sidewalk chalk art!
My grandkids range in age from 1 year on up to 14. On this particular day, I was babysitting several of the grandchildren from 3 – 8 with an extra little 2 year old friend joining in on the fun. I grabbed the sidewalk chalk and hollered for the grandkids and out to the sidewalk we trooped.
They started out with simple sidewalk chalk art
and then went wonderfully creative.
Can you see our shadows? That was a thrill because it was the first sunny day in over a week!
After a bit, they decided to play one of the most famous sidewalk chalk games ever, so Hopscotch was drawn.
As easy as this is for the babysitter, and as safe as the chalk may be, you definitely still need to watch them. The littlest one decided to decorate the fence. 🙂
Fortunately, I knew it would all wash off after the next rain, which was due any second. 🙂 Crayola sidewalk chalk definitely makes for fun, creative, and easy activities for grandparents and their grandchildren. Don't you think?
P.S. I had too many grandkids in too many ages to do anything serious. But wouldn't it be fun to use some of that Crayola sidewalk chalk for some 10 commandments activities for kids and grand children. Like, read one commandment at a time and see what THEY think up for a picture for it. Hmmmmm, now I know what my local grandkids and I will be doing next week soon. 🙂
