Painting with Sidewalk chalk

I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter!  Inspired by the ever-present sidewalk chalk that likes to make an appearance inside Easter baskets, I have a fun art project for you today!
Did you know you can make beautiful pictures using chalk and water?  Just by dipping the chalk into water and then coloring on colored construction paper you get vibrant colors a lot like pastels but without the mess (no residue on the fingers!) and you can also blend colors too!  Its a less- mess way to explore a new medium of painting using less expensive tools; win- win. You could also do this sans the construction paper outside on the... wait for it... sidewalk(!) for a bigger canvas to create on :)
So bust out those sidewalk chalks and get painting!
