Summer is here, and as much as we love going to the beach, some days we just can’t get there. So I vowed to have fun activities ready to keep the kids creating things and using their imagination. They love drawing with sidewalk chalk, so this year we made our own. The kids have had so much fun playing hopscotch, writing fun phrases around the driveway, and making inspirational pictures. This DIY Sidewalk Chalk is Awesome!
