sidewalk drawings

finishing touchessidewalk chalk is easy to come by, and makes a nice, fun activity for kids who feel the need to move around a lot. as well, it has the added benefit of leaving a visible trace for neighbours and passers-by to see what we’re doing.

An alternative to chalk for sidewalk drawings is sidewalk paint—you can make it yourself fairly easily with corn starch, water, and food colouring: two tablespoons of corn starch, four tablespoons of water and 6–8 drops of colouring will make enough for a day’s worth of sidewalk art.

You can also make your own sidewalk chalk with plaster of Paris, water and tempera paint—it’s a little bit more involved, but you get the extra thrill of making your own custom chalk!
