I decided to spend the evening outside with my boyfriend and daughter, and a box of sidewalk chalk. I ended up enjoying myself very much. Chalk is a great medium, it blends very well! I let my little girl, Elizabeth, choose the picture, and then I threw myself into a 45 minute chalk session. The results: three characters from "Yo Gabba Gabba", one of Elizabeth's favorite shows. This was a fun night! I highly recommend a famliy fun night of chalk drawing. It's fun, creative, and inexpensive! Plus, the whole neighborhood gets to admire my hard work! If you take my suggestion, I would love to hear about your very own adventures with chalk... pictures would be wonderful!
