Has the Chalk the Walk movement motivated you to get out and create some sidewalk chalk designs? For the past few weeks I’ve taken advantage of the sunnier days to get out there and create a few chalk images. I’ve created hearts, rainbows, Happy Easter scenes and most recently a few quotes to inspire our joggers in the neighborhood. But as much as I love it I was starting to run out of chalk the walk ideas.
Then I remembered that there have been so many chalk art images filling my Facebook feed. We’ve even held Chalk the Walk parades on the Jersey Family Fun Facebook page. It got me wondering could I challenge myself to come up with 100 Chalk the Walk ideas. The answer was no.
Yes, no, I couldn’t come up with 100 Chalk the Walk ideas by myself. BUT I could do it with the support of our community on Facebook and pulling inspiration from the great chalk artists out there.
May the ideas and pictures you see below inspire you to keep drawing, keep creating, and keep remembering we’re all in this together. Having fun with the kids can be as simple as grabbing some chalk.

10 How did they chalk that? Designs
All this chalk talk got me reflecting on memories I’ve made with my boys. Back in September 2013, we heard news about an Atlantic City Chalk Art Festival. I knew I had to explore it and I am so glad we did. It was pretty EPIC! These might not look like they were created by chalk but they were. They were created with chalk paint. Though there were tons of designs we’re including our 10 favorite chalk art images from the festival below.
