Need a homemade gift for dad?!

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.

Frame a Chalk Art Photo for Dad by Hip2Save
Just grab some sidewalk chalk and brainstorm a theme and message.

Tips for Success:

  • Have your kids lay or sit on the ground.
  • Use props to make it even more fun.
  • 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.
  • Frame the photo as a gift, order a photo book, calendar, canvas, coffee mug etc.

Here’s a few different Father’s Day Pose Ideas:

1.) Our Grandpa Rocks

Draw a music theme and use some musical related toys or instruments for photo props!


2.) Our Dad is Out of this World

Draw an outer space background and have the kids lay down as if they are in space helmets! So fun.


3.) Best Papa Ever (Fishing Boat)

Draw a simple boat in water, and have the kids hold pretend fishing poles!

    We did this last year & it turned out so cute! As an idea we drew buildings with my son flying over them with a cape on “You’re my super hero, Papa.”
