If you’re looking for a unique and thoughtful gift for the dad in your life, check out this fun way to use sidewalk chalk as a creative photo backdrop! The result is a frugal yet special keepsake and a fun outdoor activity to do with the kiddos.
Just grab some sidewalk chalk and brainstorm a theme and message. Use props to make it even more fun. Have your kids lay or sit on the ground. If possible, use a ladder to get a shot facing down towards the sidewalk with your camera. For best results, use a free photo editing tool afterwards (I like PicMonkey.com) to adjust the contrast so the chalk really stands out in your photos. Then frame the photo as a gift, order a photo book, calendar, canvas, coffee mug etc.
