The girls have already started their adventure with Chalk up a smile. Do you know the feeling a pleasant surprise brings to you? Finding a surprise gift at your door or finding out one of your chores or to-do lists has mysteriously been done. Yes, that kind of feeling is what we hoped to achieve with the chalk up smile. We created our sneaky surprise of kindness by leaving an encouraging chalk message on our driveway. When people pass by, they will bump into a surprise smile! It was such a fulfilling adventure, and the girls enjoyed it. The girls took pictures with their Fujifilm Instax mini camera (link below), so they could attach their adventure pictures to their summer journals.
What you need:
- Sidewalk chalk
- A section of concrete you are allowed to draw on.
- Bible verse or encouraging quote.
What to do:
- Choose a favourite quote or Bible verse
- In giant letters, copy the encouraging words onto concrete.
- Add colourful designs around the words.
- Go inside and watch for people’s smiles when they see your message.
- Hold fast to hope.
- Leave a sparkle wherever you go.
- Be awesome today!
- Never lose your sense of wonder.
- Be kind one to another.
- We are blessed, and so are you.
- You are wonderful!
- You brighten the day.
