Alien Universe

November 24, 2009

A box of chalk + two busy boys= an alien universeThey worked all afternoon and filled up the entire playground surface with drawings of aliens, planets, and spaceships. It really was amazing and inspiring. The chalk showed up nicely on the black surface (much more vibrant than on concrete) and they seemed to love having such a large "canvas". I had to drag Noah in when it got dark and he was up at the crack of dawn to keep working on it. I love being a part of these moments.

The big colorful chalk is also a hit out behind my house with the American kids, but especially with the Italian kids. I think it to also be a great gift idea for Italian kids, at least in the North.

The chalk drawings look great! It's interesting to see what different kids do with a piece of chalk and a playground. I think the alien universe looks like a lot of fun!
