Sidewalk chalk is amazing stuff. We can have a blast with it (if you can find a child to share it with, you can double the fun) – just drawing shapes and coloring them works our creative muscles. It does not have to be a work of art. Just have fun with the colors. Sidewalk chalk comes in big buckets – and it’s pretty inexpensive too.
You can also inspire people with it. You can find a great quote and write it down right there on the sidewalk for others to find.
Recently I found a sidewalk chalk masterpiece as I left a restaurant. Someone had taken the time to draw a beautiful yellow sun – under it was one word – “Smile!” And I did smile. It was a wonderful little surprise after dinner.
There are so many ways to express our creativity. We do not have to be perfect artists to be creative. We can just have fun with it.
