Rewind Friday // Painting with sidewalk chalk

Welcome to Rewind Friday link up #3! So glad your'e joining us! As I was going through the archives I wasn't set on any one post but as I came across this one, it jumped out at me- it would be perfect for a summer activity! This was originally posted on April 21, 2014, the day after Brian's birthday and Easter:

"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 :)" {Read more Painting with sidewalk chalk...}

  1. Love the painting win sidewalk chalk! That is something. Ive wanted to do! Such a great idea.

  2. Noah loved the chalk paint we just got as a gift so I'm sure he'd love doing it this way too!!!

  3. I love this idea to paint with chalk! So much fun! We may have to try that this weekend since we already have everything we need!

  4. we spend a lot of time drawing on our driveway. Its a great activity to do while also getting some sunshine and fresh air. Best invention since bubble mixture #rewindfriday

    1. Yes! I totally agree! And seeing those colorful drawings is an instant mood booster too :)

  5. I have always been so nervous to try sidewalk paint... like it will permanently stain my driveway. Bahaha ha! I think I am a bit paranoid or something. I should probably just give in and try it.

  6. We've not painted with this method!! We have made our own sidewalk chalk paint, though. Have you and the girls done that yet?
