Weekend activity - Chalk Drawing

The girls did some Chalk Drawing activity recently :-

Looks like an Octopus!

The girls enjoyed the activity..... but did it pass their Mummy's Checklist?
Expensive?  No!  RM 0.60 for a small box of chalks
Difficult Pre-Preparation?  No!  I just had to drive my car out of the driveway.  :-)
Difficult Post Clean-Up?   No! I gave them some toilet paper. Showed them how to moisten the paper then wipe out the chalk marks.
Involves Electronic Equipment like Ipad or TV ?   No!!  Triple points for that!!  

Beneficial?   Yes!  Let's see - they are not cooped-up indoors, they get a huge "canvas" to draw (good for imagination), they get to improve their motor and drawing skills etc.
Yup, definitely passed Mummy's Checklist, with distinction somemore!  
They spent almost an hour playing, until I told them it was time to stop cos it was getting dark. Gonna let them play again this weekend  :-)
