Sidewalk Fun!

Are you stumped on what to do for your special someone this Valentine's Day? Tired of the generic, impersonal cards?

The adorable solution to your problem: Sidewalk chalk

From checking boxes "yes" or "no" to handwritten valentines, kids know how to keep things simple. So, this year consider channeling your inner child, consider being creative, personal, and colorful! Surprise your loved ones with a simple note or an entire mural-the concrete is your canvas. 

It's a gesture that is sure to win their hearts (and if not, they can just hose it away).
Happy chalking!
