With summer here, I was thinking about a fun, free art project that I did as a child - sidewalk painting! Our neighbor gave us a wide house painting brush and a can of water. Her grandson and I painted the sidewalk with fun designs and watched them disappear in the sunshine. A spray bottle filled with water was fun too!
For a few dollars, you can use sidewalk chalk for a longer lasting design. Crayola now has several sidewalk paints and sprayers that can be purchased, but to me, the water designs were the best!
Above is one of the remarkable 3-D sidewalk pictures of Julian Beever. Below are Chinese men painting stories and characters on the sidewalk with water.
