I think I should own stock in sidewalk chalk. Seriously, we go through SO much of it on our home. In the spring I shared a list with fun sidewalk chalk ideas for families. We’ve used these throughout the summer and have had a blast!
But our chalk consumption doesn’t stop there. We love to use it in our learning too! Sidewalk chalk is a fabulous way to add a hands-on component to almost anything a child is learning. Sometimes you have to get a little creative, but it’s worth the effort.
