Last month I wrote a post about the ban against my children from using chalk on the sidewalk outside our condo building. I found the whole thing to be ridiculous and so silly and beyond absurd. Who could possibly take offense to occasional sidewalk chalk drawings on a public city sidewalk?!
Rose Art, an awesome company that offers products that encourage creativity, caught wind of my story and sweetly sent me a package of super fun sidewalk chalk shaped like ice cream treats. Now that we are in a new neighborhood surrounded by young families, I felt totally at ease bringing the chalk outside the other night. Evie and Mack were so happy to share the chalk with their new friends – it was a simple way for us to get to know everyone a little better.
Rose Art also sent along a big box of school supplies. The kids were beyond excited to go through the goodies – crayons, markers, paints, craft projects. Evie is particularly excited about the Glitter Makers (what 4 year old girl wouldn’t love that?!) and Mack tried out water color painting for the first time.
