When we lived in our flat, one of the things we enjoyed alot was the fact that we could draw all over our driveway and fence. When we moved into a private rented house this was impossible as we had no fence and were told off for drawing on the driveway. We made a hopscotch out of cardboard instead but it just wasn't the same. All the fun had been removed.
We have recently moved again back into a house where we can draw freely on the driveway and the patio. The kids have great fun when its sunny, they dont look 13 and 9 when they are out there giggling.
While browsing for garden ideas i come across this over at Playful Learning! Homemade Chalk!
I love it! It works so much better than shop brought chalk and its easy to make whatever colour or shade i want. I found the instructions really simple so had to share it.
