Sidewalk Chalk Conversation Hearts, 14 Days of Ways to Show Your Kids You Love Them

I wanted to do this yesterday, but the weather didn't cooperate. I drew conversation heart messages on our front walk for the kids to find after school today.  I wrote their names in a few of them.   This was a simple way to use both words of affirmation and spend quality time with my kids with one easy activity.

My neighbor came out about the time I was drawing my 10th heart and looked at me a little funny.  I was reminded of the line from one of the Madagascar movies where the penguins say, "Just smile and wave boys".  So I endure a little embarrassment to show my kids love, I can live with that.

What a creative idea! I never thought of using chalks outside during the winter. They are so cute.

I love that thought "Just smile and wave boys". I am going to remember that for the next time I am caught by another adult doing crazy things with my kids :)
