Chalk is one of our favorite outdoor play toys. It’s portable, easy to clean up, inexpensive and the possibilities are endless; hopscotch, rainbows, foursquare and now… chalk propping!
chalk propping (v) : the art of using chalk to create or add life to photos
A simple chalkboard or driveway can be magically transformed into a unique photo prop. We’re trying our hand at this trend and we’re really having fun with it!
What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up?
When I left my job at a child development center, I had to leave behind some pretty amazing kiddos (who I grew pretty attached to during the several years I worked there). Our last project together was simple, but really made for a beautiful keepsake. I had each of the 26 children answer the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Everything from a video game designer to a paleontologist, these pictures were really worth 1,000 words.
Who Lives In a Pineapple Under The Sea?
I knew someday my artistic skills would come in handy, I just didn’t know they’d be for drawing my son a picture of Spongebob. We took our chalk outside early one afternoon and started drawing away. For our first attempt at a large scale chalk propping, I think we did pretty good!
We sent a super personalized happy birthday text message to one of Ryan’s favorite people the other day. Some things money can’t buy!
