During the pandemic of 2020, I started chalking games, puzzles, pictures and rhymes in my local park (Florence Park, Oxford) hoping to give playful fun and light relief to families (and maybe to others too).
The rain would come and wash the chalk away, and I would start again with new ideas. Some of the ideas came from my imagination, and some were borrowed from people on the internet - thanks to them.
I’m hoping some of these photos might inspire others to spread smiles and colourful fun with chalk.

Whilst doing them, a little girl asked what I was doing. As we chatted, she said she was in the park to celebrate Eid with her family. I asked if she’d like me to chalk an Eid pattern, and she helped me - then her family joined in and we created an Eid message together. A passer-by was on video chat to his wife in Pakistan, and she took screenshots to show her friends! International chalking.
