Who knew that sidewalk chalk art could be so magical?

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, we've seen people all across the globe getting very creative at home, creating their own DJ sets, Olympic games, balcony concerts and more. But for a few parents in quarantine, all they need is a tub of chalk -- and their imagination! -- to make their kids smile.

One mother in North Carolina, for example, has found a new hobby of recreating iconic scenes from Disney movies like Cinderella, Frozen and Peter Pan. She purposely leaves space in each drawing so that her young daughter can pose next to her favorite characters, and, of course, take lots of cute pics!

Stacy Lazara, a mother of two in Illinois, had similar sidewalk chalk art ideas, and now posts new pics almost daily on Facebook with the hashtag "#chalkyourwalk." Her 7-year-old daughter, Ashlyn, seems to be having fun with the themes, which range from Star Wars...

✨HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY @julieafrank!✨ i wrestled with various designs all week and my excitement was draining until it hit me friday like a ton of bricks: pretty, delicate flower (YOU) + edgy tattoo vibe (ME) = US. ☯️ i love you 6 hours worth of awkward positions AND enough to not give up when i spilled my water across it which is a fucking LOT. i hope you enjoy this virtual flower and can't wait to see you non-virtually preferably sooner rather than later! . . . **RAMBLINGS** 🍪 yah i know its not a cookie but thought ya'll may still enjoy seeing process cuz i eat that shit uuup ⛈ fun fact: according to the forecast, this rose will die even sooner than regular flowers would 🖍 chalking has become my fav quarantine hobby (as some of you may have seen in my stories), finally got my hands on a box of @crayola chalk for this one and HELL YES 🖼 my previous pieces i painted over with water and loved the effect, but for this one opted to try the technique @trishmichaelphotography uses (smearing as you'd do with pastels on paper) — she was also kind enough to let me slide into her DM's and chat about timelapsing 🧦 those of you following closely will enjoy knowing the socks of my ex’s also make great smear rags, particularly the navy tartan pair (you know who you are!) ⏳ this took 6 hours... which includes numerous chats with neighbors and the hour i spent regaining composure then redoing the cross-section my water spilled on 🌞 v sunburn . . . #mothersday #sidewalkchalk #processvideo
