Chalks in the garden - Country Kids

Saturday, 7 March 2015

Spring is in the air, isn't it? Lighter mornings and evenings, birds singing, actual glimpses of the sun.

I like this. A lot.

For a few reasons, we haven't really been able to get out much in it yet, so I was scratching my head trying to think of something to contribute to Country Kids this week. We haven't been anywhere exciting, but I did finally crack open the box of jumbo chalks I bought a while back and I let my daughter loose on our garden.

Well. Mostly she demanded that I draw for her. So that she could scribble over them. She's a pretty harsh critic.

Behold, one of my many hidden talents: drawing giraffes.

They did keep her occupied for about half an hour (an age in toddler time). It's actually a pretty good use of the garden - fresh air without me having to actually go anywhere on days when I am tired/in pain.

Fortunately it rained the next day and washed it all away, but not until my parents had come round and giggled at my horrific chalk animals!

Hope you're all enjoying the early spring sunshine :)

  1. I love giant chalks, infact I was just talking today with Farmer Nick about making a chalk wall. I think it would be great fun. As you say a perfect way to enjoy some outdoor time with little effort. thank you for sharing with me on CountryKids.
