Chalk it Up to Experience


I'm seriously contemplating spending some time outside this summer with a bucket of chalk. I already found the perfect kit. It comes with polka dot chalk, striped chalk, marbleized chalk and chalk holders, which are genius. Why weren't those around when I was a kid? To think, I spent all those afternoons scraping my knuckles on pavement for the sake of art.

  9. I have never seen chalk so vibrant (apart from the very expensive dry pastels which I'd never waste on the sidewalk), so I just googled and found out you can make sidewalk chalk from plaster of paris and tempera paints. Totally doing this now!

  12. I actually used to do that! Color the payment with chalk. I loved it but my mom wasn't the biggest fan of my "artwork" as she was always the one who had to hose it down. ;)
