First, Surprise Inside Sidewalk Chalk is just what it says ~ hidden inside one of the 3D-shaped chalk pieces in each kit is a collectible toy! The kit we used looked like this:
We loved the sea life theme, with the starfish in the middle, and other chalk pieces shaped like shells and seahorses. And, sure enough, as when we used up the starfish piece, a little toy emerged. Isn’t this fish adorable?
RoseArt also challenged us to create our own chalk drawing. We wanted to create something big and bold, so we could photograph it for you, and we got inspired by looking through a book of Rangoli Indian art. Rangoli is a special colorful drawing done on the ground by the front entrance of a home to welcome visitors. It’s often created using a grid of dots, so the pictures are very geometric. We chose to free-draw rather than use dots, but still went with a geometric presentation of a butterfly! Here’s how our drawing turned out:
We were asked to show the hidden toy in our drawing, but it doesn’t show up very well in pictures because our drawing is so big, so here’s a shot of the toy on one of the butterfly’s wings.
RoseArt Surprise Inside Sidewalk Chalk is available in five different packs with the opportunity to find 20 possible figurines! Priced at about $3 a pack, you can find them nationwide at Target, Walmart and Kmart. A few of the other kits are shown below:
