  • Have your hose handy to wash the paint off after you are done – this is so much fun and you might even cool off on a hot day
  • *The paint dries pretty quickly, but I did worry that some kids were going to come by at any second and get the wet form of our sidewalk chalk on the bottom of their shoes or bike tires. I made sure I was around to tell the kids to be careful of the wet paint or join in on the fun
