Yes, that is my "baby" thinking about eating the chalk.
Sidewalk chalk has got to be one of the best inventions for outside play. It builds fine motor skills and works on the creative side of the brain. You can also use sidewalk chalk as time to practice writing letters, numbers, or names. I have spent many summer days outside drawing things with my children.
One day, my son and his friends drew a map on the patio. They would consult their map as they went on their adventure.
As a two year old, Kaitlyn drew literally hundreds of "O's." She had just learned how and was definitely obsessed.
You can leave special messages for Daddy or visitors to your home.
You can draw pictures and smooth the chalk out to make a more pastel look.
