Girl Scouts is inviting all kids to get outside and get creative. Throughout the summer, families can join virtual programs to learn how to create homemade sidewalk chalk. After the program, kids are encouraged to beautify their neighborhoods by cleaning up any litter and then coloring uplifting messages and fun designs on their sidewalks.

With the mission of making the world a better place, Girl Scouts are encouraging small steps kids can take to be engaged and active in their communities.

All girls and their families, not just members of Girl Scouts, are invited to join Chalk Your Walk virtual programs to learn how to make homemade sidewalk chalk. To register, for an upcoming event, visit www.tinyurl.com/gseventbrite.
