Isn’t it amazing how this little box of 20 sidewalk chalk can amuse Ethan so?
I just remembered it had been collecting dust in one of our boxes for goodness-knows-how-long, and I was reminded of its existence when I saw some kids playing with their sidewalk chalk on the sidewalk recently.
Now when we go for our walks in the park with Ethan, he’ll want to bring along his box of chalk. He won’t even allow anyone to carry it for him, and he’ll hug it really tight too.
Unfortunately some of the chalks have broken, due to *mishandling* on Ethan’s part… He’ll run over to tell me that “it’s broken, Mommy!”
Nevertheless this is a really good creativity tool to have for kids. Yesterday evening, I introduced simple hopscotch to Ethan too!
Hehe…I’ve asked Ethan to say thank you to Aunty Audrey for the chalk, when we next meet. 🙂
