The Kid Heroes of Sidewalk Chalk Art

Milwaukee, Wisconsin | Fun

Feeling cooped up and stressed out at home last week, Don decided to take a break from work to go for a walk through his neighborhood. It turned out to be an excellent decision because what he discovered made him smile and forget his worries: the sidewalks were filled with colorful chalk art created by children! Greetings, words of encouragement, animals, geometric shapes, spring flowers. Everywhere he walked, he found the loveliness only a child can create.

Don now makes a habit of taking a mid-day break, walking in a new direction and seeing what creations he can find. And lucky for his co-workers, he’s not keeping these random acts of beauty private. Don takes pictures and shares the drawings with his Northwoods co-workers who delight in his daily posts.

These kids might not realize it, but they are helping us stay positive, get through these tough days, and come out in better shape. All across the nation, kids are giving back to the rest of us in ways they only partially understand.

If you’re a parent of one of these junior street artists, please tell your kids that they’re making a difference, and we deeply appreciate what they are doing. They might not know it, but they are our Frontline Heroes too!
