My New Invention: Chalk Holder

Assorted pieces of sidewalk chalk
I realize that summer is almost gone, but I wanted to share my new invention – a long chalk holder. My son always wants me to draw tracks for him on the driveway, so he can race his bike. Need I say how hard it is to draw a track while on hands and knees, or bending over? (No nasty jokes, here please).

So I taped a piece of chalk (using packing tape) on the top of a broom handle and used it to draw the track in record time – and with no back problems! Yes, I know there are chalk holders you can buy, though I think most of them are kid-sized. But isn’t it easier to just do it yourself than run out to buy one?
