A simple concept paired with great friends and lots of kids made for one awesome sidewalk chalk party. I had come across the idea for a chalk party on a blog a while ago but there were not many details or ideas but I thought the concept was fantastic. After a little crafting, planning and setting up our play group sidewalk chalk party was a blast.
The boys and I arrived early to set up and as Pacey stuck his tongue into a cupcake and Trexen started helping draw the race track I had to take a breath and remind myself this is for the kids, this won't be exactly how I pictured in my mind and these little things are no big deal. Sometimes when I plan parties I want to set it all up and leave it at that, just pretend there are guests and not mess anything up, but then that wouldn't be much of a party would it.
Then the party guests start arriving and those thoughts disappear and are replaced with excitement. I had close to 100 pieces of chalk, made a race track for hot wheels, hopscotch and had water bottles to turn chalk into paint. There were about 20 moms and close to 50 kids ready for a morning of fun.
Everyone snacked on cotton candy cupcakes, strawberries, Popsicles and more.
The kids were so creative, taking time to chalk, chase and climb at the park.
Thanks to my friend Jenna for opening her house for potty runs and helping me set up. A perfect sidwalk chalk party!
