A few simple, kid-found tools: chalk and water. Some awesome kid creativity. This activity developed quite organically: making sidewalk chalk into paint while coloring.
This turned into a very calming activity with everyone mostly very focused on their own part of the project. I spent several warm nights snapping pictures of their beautiful creations as the sun went down and they experimented with mixtures of water and chalk.
Moving the paint and the water around with their hands was a wonderful sensory experience.
We ran out of sidewalk chalk after a couple of days. No matter. Sidewalk chalk is majorly on sale this time of year. We stocked up and they were back in business.
Grateful to live where the days of early autumn are still quite warm. And enjoying artful moments with my kids.
