Chalk off the Sidewalk

The girls (Daven's treasured Deedee and Momo) are off for spring break this week and this afternoon they got to come over and play with Daven.  I decided to set up an art station for them so that we could try out using wet chalk on paper.

I used the same card stock and shapes that we used for our last project.  We have tons of outdoor chalk from last summer that doesn't get used very often.  They each had their own paint brush and water.

The girls seemed to have fun doing this project.  Daven sat for a total of about 2 minutes before he was back to his toys.  We found there are two ways to do this:

1. Dip the chalk in water and draw on the paper.
2. Draw with the chalk (dry) and then paint over with a wet paintbrush.

I think they turned out pretty neat.  The kids were finished a lot faster than I thought they would be though.  The whole process from the time they all sat down until the last shape was colored was about 10 minutes.  It would be great if you have a few moments to fill.
