1,000 Lovely Things: Sidewalk Chalk Party Favors

For Hank’s third birthday I made these inexpensive sidewalk chalk party favors.

I bought the pretty striped chalk in packs of four at the drugstore, then rolled each piece in waxed paper and just twisted the ends to seal them. Easy, fast and cheap.

  1. I am SO copying this idea. I’ve had it with itsy-bitsy play-do, cheap plastic junk and sugar (to cap off the birthday cake). Brilliant!

  3. totally unrelated to this post…which is a brilliant idea by the by but i just wanted to say i am inspired by your quest to taste 1000 fruits…you go girl.


  4. So… when I first looked at this, I thought: “Seriously! Maggie makes her own chalk???” Which was followed up by (to myself, of course): “She’s not only a brilliant blogger, business guru, fashionista, and fun to boot, but she MAKES.HER.OWN.CHALK!” DAMN!!!!!!!

    Then, I saw that you bought the chalk and turned it into the most awesome party favors evs and secretly uttered to myself, “Thank goodness! I won’t have to cancel our lunch date in San Francisco from total amazing motherhood envy!” Because although the party favor idea is sheer genius, how would I ever compare to a mom who makes her own chalk? LOL!

    So…. see you in a few. Weeks or months, I’m not sure yet, but soon! Maybe we can have learn to make chalk together when I come. Think of the fun!

    So fun chatting with you at Mom 2.0!
