Do you remember having a Spirograph? I never had one, but sure remember using one. For my children, this was something new. And a little different. Our Spirograph is HUGE, and made for sidewalk chalk.
Our sidewalk is quite bumpy, so we adapted our activity and used an old table top, a huge paper, and some jumbo crayons. The images were much clearer, but not as messy, an just not the same.
It wasn't before they were back at the chalk, but this time, with a spray bottle. When wet, the cement turned darker, and the chalk color really seemed to "pop".
A beautiful afternoon!
