Chalk Play | Let's Lasso the Moon

It started out sweet and innocent. The girls discovered that if you get your hands wet and rub them into a chalk drawings you can make hand prints.

The next time I returned I found two little blue aliens. My first instinct? To yell. Luckily, my second instinct (to laugh) took over. I got my camera and asked the girls to give you a few “crazy poses.”

Chalk Play | Let's Lasso the MoonI asked myself these simple questions from A Lifetime of Yes Moments:

  • Will saying “yes” to this situation hurt or bother anyone? No!
  • Can the child learn anything from the situation?
    Yes, what a great science experiment!
  • Does it really (really) matter one way or another? Nope!

Kids + (Chalk + Water) = Fun

    My boys did the same thing a few weeks ago. My back patio still has a rainbow of chalk all over it:)

    Your aliens are adorable! It’s hard to say yes sometimes. I have to remind myself sometimes that mess is OK and it’s also OK if I get messy too! Much more fun that way. I can’t wait until it is a little warmer her in Australia so we can take the mess outside more often!

    We haven’t even delved much into sidewalk chalk yet this summer. Thanks for the reminder. And for linking it up to the Kids Co-Op last week. :)

    Oh, we love chalk and water :) Discovered it by accident after a storm and now my daughter is always dipping it before drawing. Lovely post!
