My two children have sensory processing disorder, and they both hate getting dirty. I always try to find a way to get them to explore sensory and craft materials that will not make messy hands. I had the idea to make my sidewalk chalks in empty deodorant containers. My first test was unsuccessful, but the second test worked and I am very proud! Chalks are retractable and you can take it anywhere without fear that they will make a mess in your car or purse.

FROZEN Inspired Ice Chalk

Once Disney’s FROZEN came out to DVD we bought it to see what all the fuss was about.  I still love watching Disney movies until this day.  Having kids is a good reason to keep up with all the new movies coming out. We give the movie 2 thumbs up. The other day while in the kitchen (where most inspiration seems to hit) I thought Frozen inspired ice chalk would be a fun activity for the kids.  I saw frozen chalk on Reading Confetti last year and have wanted to try it since then.  This seemed like the perfect time.  I could not wait to see how the kids would react.
