Warning: playing with chalk may turn your cat blue.

This has been making us giggle this week. See what happens when you let your children play outside with chalks. Blue Cat Syndrome! (Of course she had to lie exactly when the girls had been drawing!)

What have you been playing this week? Did you get messy?

      Catherine, the same thing happened to me. It’s a new version of Linky – I’ll get rid of the extras for you.

    Tee hee! I would say poor cat but if it’s anything like mine it positively gravitates to anything I’m doing, and getting into mischief x

    This is funny…that reminds me when my sister was around 6 years old and after 1 hour inside the bedroom she got outside with her cat on hands….she cut all the cat’s whiskers because they were long….

    What a great site! So glad I found you! I have a preschool in my home and was running out of ideas. I am a huge fan and supporter of play based learning. I have a 3 year old who has been with me a year and a half and knows all letters, sounds, shapes, colors, how to mix colors to get the secondary colors, and some numbers. His understanding is amazing and so is his memory. Play based works!
