I mean, I got some truly incredulous looks when I pulled out the bucket of sidewalk chalk at the wading pool today. Why in the world would I bring my chalk swimming?
Well, I think the question is more like, why not?
A kid can only walk around in water up to her shins for so long before she gets bored, am I right? I wanted to spend the afternoon at the water’s side, so I came prepared with boats, and scoops, snacks and buckets, toys and…
Big chunky, colourful chalk and water are made for one another. The colours are more vibrant…
The splashes are way more epic! The children will draw and draw JUST to see colourful splashes they can create!
It also includes kids of all ages, from toddlers to school-aged kids!
By the time we were ready to pack up, we had a bunch more kids we didn’t know join in the fun! The boy is mine, the wee girl is one of the unexpected visitors.
These two stayed til the very end…
And the best part?
The cleaning up part is just as fun as the drawing part!
Just sploosh it all away and come back another day!
So the next time you’re packing up to head out to the city wading pool, take some advice from Picasso and bring along your chalk.
Happy Summer, friends!
Thanks for stopping by!
