It might take some prodding, but once I get them outside, they are almost always content, doing whatever they can to while away the time.
Today, all that was needed was a stick of chalk and the pavement.
I love playing with chalk with my nephew. You’re right, it’s the getting outside part that’s a struggle, but once he’s there – it’s easy!
Hands down our easiest and most portable activity. I use it to entertain and occupy Daughter while Son plays t-ball. I’m pretty sure she thinks sidewalk chalk is the reason we’re at the field.
I never think of the chalk – my kids aren’t big artists. But there’s something about a huge blank canvas that inspires anybody!
