'Fun' chalk graffiti messages in Kinsmen Park
A Saskatoon mother is paying it forward after she was greeted with a
few friendly chalk graffiti messages on her way to work this
Sasha Burrows was walking through Kinsmen Park, near Saskatoon City Hospital's parking lot, when she noticed messages telling her to "count the magpies" and "make a blanket fort."
"They made me smile so I took out my phone and I took some photos," said Burrows, who works for the Saskatoon Health Region. "It was kind of a fun thing to see on a Friday morning," she said.
Burrows has since shared the pictures with her coworkers, bringing a smile to their face as well.
"I wanted to share that happiness with everyone else this morning," she said, adding that the consensus amongst her coworkers so far is that the "make a blanket fort" message is their favourite.
"That one just brought back yesterday's memory of building a blanket fort in my [two-year-old] son's bedroom," she said. "We were giggling, he was under the sheets and I was trying to tickle him through the top of the blanket."
Burrows, who has walked through Kinsmen Park every morning for the past year, said this is the first time she has seen the messages.
"Usually, the graffiti you see is not the nicest graffiti in the world," she said.
"But this was just like a parent doing it with their kids."
