Heads or Tails #15 - Mark

This week's topic is Mark. A couple of people named Mark come to mind, but what I'm going to write about is a different kind of mark - the kind that my kids make when they draw or write.

Last weekend after raking leaves, my girls asked to get out the sidewalk chalk. Sure, it was cold and windy, but what the heck - if they wanted to draw... Somehow the colors look so much more vivid now in the autumn than they did when faded by the summer sun.

Here's Hannah's marks on the pavement:

And Abby's marks:

Pretty similar, huh! I'm not sure which of them copied from the other, but it's interesting to see the differences and similarities - how each of them leaves their mark on the 'canvas'.

Looks like you have a couple of budding artists in the family! Loved the pictures and I loved comparing the two drawings. Great post.

How fun! When we lived in Lakewood there were neighbor kids who would draw on the sidewalks and my little one loved to point out their pictures to me. :) Thanks for reminding me of that memory! :)

Very nice work! :) Looks like they both love sunny days! :) Too bad these marks will fade with the weather! Enjoy them while you can! :)

I see you have a couple of budding artists in your family. Sidewalk chalk is one of the best (and cheapest) inventions for kids. :)

I have fond memories of some of the sidewalk art my children did when they were little, we used to do murals.
Now NBear & Boo Bear love to draw and do so all of the time.
Great take on the HoT theme this week.
