Decorate Your Street with Chalk

We all need a little more colour in our lives, and what simpler way to brighten up your neighbourhood than with chalk drawings on the footpaths?

The joy of chalk is that it can be purchased in most local art shops and toy shops, and even in some newsagents.

Get the whole neighbourhood out drawing and sharing their creations. All you need is some chalk…and your imagination!

What You Need

Packets of chalk

Pavement, driveway or garden walls to decorate (be mindful of your neighbours space)

For children participating, always have an adult to supervise. Remember to be careful when drawing near roads!
