NAILED IT OR FAILED IT: Celebrating Summer by Becoming Sidewalk Artists

We all remember those long, hot days of summer when you would spend endless hours outside playing with your friends. Those days usually included some sidewalk chalk, right?

For Nailed It Or Failed It on Friday, June 7th, we did something a little different with sidewalk chalk. We attempted to make sidewalk foam paint. I found this idea on Pinterest on a blog called The Tip Toe Fairy, whose slogan is "Let's Make Something Fun." Perfect!

All you need for this craft is flour, washable glue, foam shaving cream, food coloring, some plastic bags, scissors, and plastic squirt bottles. To see how we put all those items together, click the video above. SPOILER ALERT: It's messy!

AND - if you want to see some real chalk artists - make plans to attend the 3rd Annual Chalk Art Fest on Saturday, June 8th and Sunday, June 9th in Downtown Bettendorf! Click here for all the information.


Is it a shot or is a drink? That's what we don't know. What we do know is it's kinda tasty.


  • Cream Soda
  • Fireball Whisky
  • Whipped Cream

Put some Fireball in a glass, top it with some cream soda, finish it off with a little whipped cream, and do what you do best. We need to know from you, is it a shot or is it a drink?
