14-Year-Old Spends The Quarantine Creating Chalk Drawings Each Day To Entertain Her Little Brother With ‘Travels’ From Their Driveway

No school, no sports or band practice, no sleepovers or camps mean children and teens are hugely on their own when it comes to keeping busy and entertained during the quarantine. But that doesn’t mean they’re doomed to boredom.

Take 14-year-old Macaire Everett and her 9-year-old little brother, Camden, for example. The siblings have found a unique way to brighten up not only their own lives, but their entire community’s as well. Since the beginning of the lockdown, Macaire has been drawing creative ‘scenes’ with chalk on their sidewalk and Camden has been ‘traveling’ through them all around the world (and time!) and posing for amusing photos. Their neighborhood in Libertyville, Illinois, has already witnessed over 100 artworks, but the sister and brother duo don’t plan to stop just yet; they say there are more adventures to go on!

“I came up with the idea since my brother and I needed something to do during quarantine,” Macaire told Bored Panda. “After I did one chalk drawing of balloons, I asked him to be in the picture and he had fun, so I did it again. After chalking for about 15 days in a row, I decided to set a goal of chalking 100 days in a row.”

But even now, as Macaire and Camden have surpassed their milestone, their project hasn’t become a task to them. They still continue to do it. “It was fun to pretend that he could travel and go on fun adventures,” Macaire explained. “I met the goal of chalking 100 days in a row on July 4, and I keep chalking (about every other day) to help spread joy to others since people tell me this makes them happy.”#2

I love this!4ReplyView more comments

You could say the whole series is a perfect representation of the bond these two share. “We have always been close and this has brought us even closer since we come up with ideas together and talk like he’s really going on all these adventures.”

The 14-year-old has to go back to school in the middle of August so for now, she’s planning to continue the series at least until then. “We are having fun doing this and are so happy other people enjoy it,” she added.#3
