How to Host A ‘Chalk Your Walk’ Event In Your Neighborhood
For more fun ideas while you’re social distancing, why not create a chalk walk?
This idea is gaining popularity and even cities and counties are getting into the idea! Our local county here in Colorado made this a “Chalk Your Walk” weekend.
The idea behind it is to decorate your front walks with sidewalk chalk with cartoons, positive messages, and more. Then gather your family and take a walk throughout your neighborhood to admire your neighbors creations too.
Besides just drawings, why not create a sensory play walk on your front walk? Our reader Lori’s teen daughters, Em and Lizzy, created an awesome chalk obstacle course for their young and young-at-heart neighbors walking by.
Hop! Spin! Jump! Touch your toes! Roar and stomp! These ideas are perfect for a chalk walk, especially when little ones are cooped up in the house all day. Wouldn’t it be great to take a walk and find these kind of chalk obstacle courses to break up the monotony of staying inside? I think we’re going to create one too.
