There will be rainbows of colour splashed across the Shire of Harvey this month as children are encouraged to go out and paint their driveways.

The chalk initiative was started by the Harvey Shire Council in a bid to “spread joy”.

Harvey shire president Paul Gillett said the council donated 100 packets of chalk for children to create masterpieces around the shire.

“It is a great idea, it gets people out into the sunshine and gives kids the opportunity to do something fun and safe,” he said.

Cr Gillett encouraged parents to take pictures of their children’s creations and tag the council.

“We could get a competition going to see which town can produce the best chalk driveways,” he said.

Cr Gillett said the council would be willing to give out more chalk if the demand was there. Chalk can be collected by calling the Australind library.
