Sidewalk painting

Well we had a slight disagreement on the playground today. The kids wanted to get messy with mud and water and I....didn't.

Eventually I lost the battle. They won me over with their enthusiastic delight of every splat! their mud pies made on the sidewalk, and I consented to filling a large buck with water.

On the way I grabbed a box of chalk thinking maybe I could get them interested in drawing some machines rather than coating themselves in mud.

No, that did not work.

Of course a number of woodchips went in the bucket, a bit of mud and then the chalk took a dip. I scooped the chalk out of the water so that it didn't dissolve and this is what we discovered!

Chalk paint!

So vibrant and fun! and just a bit messy.
