    Get some Phatty sidewalk chalk get your sidewalk wet and draw on it wet..smear the colors round and leave it without washing...when it dries it will be very bright and vivid...Maybe you could have some tie die steps leading to your door...:p

    I'm totally gonna do that! When i wake up, i go sit out front on the sidewalk in the sun. Lately i've wanted to get a pack of those huge sidewalk chalks, the kind we used to draw with when we were little, and just go insane with colors. The wet sidewalk idea is perfect. :D

    Weird, somehow that just put me in an amazing mood.

    I thoight of this because my 2 year old likes to play with the hose on the sidewalk and we draw with chalk in it and when it dried it was soo extra bright. Much brighter then normal without the water and you can smear it around...anyways enjoy :)

    It makes some fun face paint too for the kids...I did that with my friend when I was little ..of corse when it starts to dry on your skin it feels a bit chalky ...hehe. but it makes for some really cool feetprints.

    the kids around here take the sidewalk chalk and grind it against the pavement until it turns into powder. then they play with the powder. they dont even draw pictures with the chalk anymore. i dont understand it.

    Oh man, I used to have so much fun with chalk.

    Me and my best friend would grind it up into powder and keep it as "Sister Dust" because we thought we were sisters (we looked like it, too).

    Once me and a few kids my mom was babysitting for wrote a bunch of obscene things on the driveway and she made us wash it off with the hose, which is how I discovered the nice bright colours. Hehe. :p

    I need to go to the dollar store, I want chalk!

    My neighbours are all old and look at me funny anyway. Ooh, this summer is going to be so much fun!

    my grand daughter already does that....quite the sidewalk artist already...but she is third generation hippie....so what else would you expect:)
    as far as how long does it last some one asked........well my daughters sidewalk is still holding the color from last summer....so it has some staying power.

    Thanks for the SWC tip; it's been awhile since I had some fun with SWC and hope to try the wetting technique this summer.

    Just had an unusual thought: This world might be a much better place if a number of 'heads of state' would relax, sit down together and enjoy a drawing session with, you guessed it, 'sidewalk chalk'.
