1st Chalk Experience

There is a first for everything, right?

Well Ms. A recently had her first experience with sidewalk chalk. I was excited because she's been into her art projects lately. But, she was still feeling a bit under the weather and we found out it was actually pretty cold outside. Not a great combination for outside play. [When I say cold, I mean like 55 degrees. Haha. Thank you California for such mild winters. But yes, it was cold].

We started off actually drawing on the ground and using the chalk the way it was meant to be used.

Then, Ms. A started zoning. Can you see her staring into nothing? I can.

Apparently the cold, hard ground looked more appealing than making little chalk animals and having chalky fingers.

There you have it. Our 5-minute experience with chalk ended just as quickly as it began.
