mindful living, effortless style

This squirtable sidewalk chalk is my kids' new favorite outdoor activity.  Love the secret ingredient for adding a little science to the fun!

Outdoor Creativity: DIY Squirtable Sidewalk Chalk

Between the Kid’s Rule Nutrition program and our sinfully delicious Banana Boats, we’ve been covering the full health spectrum of foods this week.  So how about one last food-related post? Although this one does include a recipe, it’s not actually for cooking – but for getting outside and playing. In fact, this one’s helping to put the “messy kids” in Modern Parents Messy Kids.

We tried this DIY squirtable sidewalk chalk last week and it instantly shot to the top of our list of go-to outdoor activities.  Check out my full instructions over on eHow’s mom channel here.

Also this week, I’m over on Sulia discussing (amongst other things), more food!  Come check out this mouth-watering coconut banana bread recipe that’s GAPS, Paleo, and grain-free and share your favorite healthier dessert.

Happy weekend friends – we’ll be spending it moving into our new house (yipee!) so wish us luck!
