Games with chalk can be so much more than just the simple hopscotch and drawing stick figures. With summer approaching, we’re looking for more creative ways to get outside and play with our kids. Games with chalk is a great place to start!
Create an outdoor race track for your toy cars by laying out paving stones and using chalk to create the road lines
Teach letter recognition by writing out the alphabet outside in sidewalk chalk, and then using a hockey stick or something similar, hit a puck (or ball) and name the letter it lands on
Write out numbers in chalk and then have your kids roll the dice. They must add up their total and hop through the numbers to reach the one they rolled
Have fun playing the classic game of hopscotch by drawing out squares and number each one 1-10. This is great exercise for little ones!
Use those extra paving stones lying around and build them into the shape of a rainbow. Your kids can take their sidewalk chalk and color in rainbow colors to finish it up.
Trace your child's shadows with chalk to create a sundial. You can teach your kids a lot about how the earth moves throughout the day by making a new shadow every hour
Make art with your kids by finding items outside like leaves and twigs and using them to color on paper with chalk.
A twist on the ever popular tic-tac-toe; draw your board and toss bean bags into the square you’d like to claim.
Make photos of your kid playing the games and upload the collage to the App. Write what game he or she liked most at all.
