During these crazy times, I’ve noticed that a new group of people have been born: chalk artists. Many creative people have started using their skills by creating beautiful artwork out of chalk. They have been covering sidewalks for the world to see. I am not a chalk master, so I cannot show you how to create masterpieces, but I can show you some fun ideas. Let’s get started!
Supplies you need:
* Sidewalk chalk
* A sidewalk
Hopscotch is a simple game, but so much fun! Something about throwing rocks and jumping is so entertaining. I even caught my mom having a little fun with on this hopscotch board. Make your hopscotch on the sidewalk in front of your house (if you have one) and you might catch you neighbor hopping down the path as he or she crosses your board.
2. Walk the line
This is another fun chalk game that you and anyone walking by can play. Make a loopy, crazy, zigzag, and confusing line that has a start and a finish. Try to walk from the start to the finish without getting confused. You could even make a couple “levels” with each one getting harder and harder.
3. Use what you have
Want to draw something, but you don’t know what to draw? You needn’t look any farther than the sidewalk for inspiration. Turn a crack into a river or street, make a weed into some hair or a forest, transform a hole into a lake or canyon. Get creative!
I hope that I helped you get creative. Have fun and stay safe!
