There’s no better way to celebrate spring than by jazzin' up the sidewalks and driveways of your neighborhood. Grab a piece
of chalk—or a bucketful—and start scribbling, sweeties! Need some ideas? Snag
our top tips below…and a special giveaway from our friends at Klutz.
Don’t step on the crack!
Turn problem areas into works of art by using a crack in the
pavement to your advantage. It could be the crack of egg, urged on by a baby
bird. Or a mountain traversed by a train. Or bolts of lightning from a dark
storm cloud. Or the snarl that tops an angry set of eyes.
Rock it out!
Who says you’ve gotta keep your chalk on the ground? If
you’ve got large rocks or boulders in your yard or neighboring your driveway,
give ‘em personalities or draw on funny scenes.
What’d you say?
Write inspiring quotes, funny phrases, knock-knock jokes or
random words all over town. People will stop, stare ‘n’ read, we promise!
Get your game on
Draw a hopscotch grid, a treasure map, an
impromptu Twister mat. Get the whole community involved in a human-sized game of chess or checkers. Play pictionary down the sidewalk. Whatever strikes your fancy, babe.
WIN BIG! We loved Klutz’s
Chalk the Block
so much we decided to give it away! The No. 1 activity book company for kids
and adults alike is handing out copies to FOUR (count ‘em, 4) soon-to-be scribblin’ girlies.
