Make use of the biggest canvas of all - a concrete wall to unleash your creativity.

Step 1

Gather the materials.

Step 2

Find a spot such as an HDB corridor or a void deck that hardly anyone walks by. The grey concrete serves as the perfect art canvas as it makes chalk stains visible yet it is instantly washable with water.

Step 3

Parents to use a chalk to draw the ‘boundaries’ to mark the actual space where the child can draw.

Step 4

Ask your child to draw away using their chalk!

Step 5

To clean up, simply pour water over the chalk stains. Wait for it to evaporate. Done!
