I've really gotten into sidewalk chalk lately. It brings me back to drawing hopscotch in the driveway of my childhood home.

These days, it's a true art form. I'm no Picasso, but I actually think I draw much better with chalk. And, I LOVE that you can draw something as large or small as you want. When social distancing was really at its height, I took to the SoJO 104.9 parking lot to draw a giant rainbow.

I actually find drawing with chalk really relaxing, and I'm sure it bring you and your kids together, too.

10 'Chalk the Walk' Ideas to Try with the Kids:

1. May as well 'scrub' up a reminder to keep up good habits.

2. Never underestimate the power of a punchy and proportional rainbow. We could all use the positive vibes right now.

3. Love the idea of breaking out a little painters tape for a bit of sidewalk stained glass.
