The Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois is inviting kids to get outside and get creative by showing them how to make sidewalk chalk and then using it to “Chalk Your Walk.”

There will be several opportunities in July where families can watch a virtual program to learn how to make homemade sidewalk chalk. Then kids are then encouraged to beautify their neighborhood by picking up litter and coloring uplifting messages and fun designs on their sidewalks.

Anyone, not just members of the Girl Scouts, can participate in the Chalk Your Walk virtual programs. You can register for an upcoming event by visiting here.

The Chalk Your Walk virtual program is scheduled for the following dates and times:

  • Thursday, July 2, 2020, from 6:00-6:45 p.m.
