So, I know today may not have the nicest weather if you live where I do…the Tri Cities in central Washington.  But still, I dare you, sneak outside with your kids (or with yourself) at some point today, and doodle on the ground.  Or the fence; or what-have-you.  Go on!!  By the way, if you’re wondering about these patterned chalks, the stripey ones are from Albertson’s.  I believe the polka-chalks are from Michael’s.  They write the same as regular chalks, but they sure are fun to look at!  Also, if you don’t have a chalkboard or chalk wall in your house, it really is loads of fun.  I have a huge wall that I painted with chalkboard paint.  But my favorite spot is on the side of a cupboard, because it has a nice smooth surface.
