What I did was draw on the chalkboard for him and then he had chalk to wash away with the water. We got out a cup full of water and 2 paint brushes. He took and wet the paint brushes and painted the chalkboard until the chalk seemed to be washed away. I just told him to paint but I guess he was really cleaning, haha. He likes things clean and in order. But has no problems jumping in the dirt and coming out covered in it:-) Love my son and his personality! We did spend about 10 or 15 min outside and got some fresh air while doing this activity. I would say it was a success. Hope you can have fun with it too. Here is a link I had pinned with the idea http://oneperfectdayblog.wordpress.com/2012/05/17/water-painting-on-a-chalkboard-a-pre-writing-activity/
