Chalk Dress-up Dolls

Most of us have used sidewalk chalk for hopscotch and other games, or to draw original art.  Here’s a more creative idea that combines chalk and paper dolls – Chalk Dress-up Dolls. It’s easy and fun: Just have your child lie on the sidewalk or driveway and draw an outline around his or her body. Let your child give your chalk figure some hair and a face, then let her dress your creation like a paper doll, using kids’ clothing. Try a dress, a leotard, shorts and tops, even shoes. Clean-up is easy – just toss the clothes in the laundry.
