There is something about drawing really big on the ground that I find really appealing. I can’t pass it up a chance to doodle. But I feel like a total jerk when I’m drawing on the ground with my kids at festivals. Like I’m using up chalk that some other kid could be using. But it’s to much fun to pass up.
Even at home I feel like I’m using up my kids fun. But I shouldn’t because sidewalk chalk is pretty cheap and we usually end up leaving it out in the rain so it gets wasted anyway.
Anyhow, recently we were drawing in the driveway of my sister-in-law’s house and I drew my normal robot/guy/monster waving. Then I took a look what my son had drawn.
My sidewalk drawing days are over. I think I’ll let him use all the chalk from now on.
