The Chalk Shop on Etsy offers custom chalk shapes, perfect as party favors for themed birthday parties or even as a gift for the birthday boy or girl.

pink glitter cupcake chalkChalk It Up To Fun! The Chalk Shop on Etsy has a wide variety of charming chalk shapes, which are perfect for use as party activities, favors, or birthday presents for any themed party. Think teapots and teacups for an Alice in Wonderland affair, flip-flops for a beach bash, hearts for Valentine’s Day, or lucky shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day.

The glittery mini cupcake chalk (pictured; $9) comes in a set of six, which includes blue, green, orange, pink, purple, and yellow frosting. Each is hand-piped and topped with a good dose of glitter, about the same size as an actual mini confection. It looks good enough to eat—just don’t confuse it for the real thing!

Originally created by a mother in Lowell, MA, for her then 18-month-old daughter, each piece of chalk is handmade with special attention to detail so there are never rough edges that could harm little hands, is durable, dries with a protective seal, and comes packaged ready for gift giving, whether as a birthday present or a party favor. And all the chalks from The Chalk Shop can be used on sidewalks, chalkboards, and chalk mats so children can be creative whenever inspiration strikes. See all 23 shapes and find out about custom ordering at etsy.com/shop/thechalkshop.
