For July 15, 2012: Summer is the perfect time for neighborhoods and communities to unleash the artistic talent of kids through sidewalk chalk art. Many communities have contests during their summer festivals. To get started with some ideas, visit these sites. TLC Sidewalk Art for Kids provides how-to information for your first creation. At Enchanted Learning you can find a recipe for making your own chalk from plaster of Paris. Jump over to Crayola and watch a video on how to make glow chalk as well as learn about 3D designs that pop. Then, begin painting on your concrete canvas. And don't forget the camera!
