Let’s Give ‘Em Something to Chalk About

There is no limit to the simple creativity that abounds when it comes to the classic “art” of drawing with chalk on asphalt.  It’s easy, it’s cheap, and the creations only last until the next rain, so there’s no big mess to worry about.  As a result, kids love to draw on pavement, and, heck, so do many adults for that matter!

To celebrate the timeless joy of drawing in the streets, folks in Vancouver made a quasi-event out of this stress-relieving activity by hosting the aptly named “Chalkupy Vancouver.”  You can also check out the since re-named Play with Chalk Day Facebook page.  (Apparently “Chalkupy Vancouver” threw some people off so the name was revised.)

Judging by the chalk filled street, it looks like people young and old had a great time with it… and that’s what it’s all about.
