3 Fun and Easy Sidewalk Chalk Activities
Trace and decorate your child with chalk:
This is our favourite chalk activity! The kids lay down, and strike a fun pose. I trace them, and then we colour them in and add facial features.
Bubble Hopscotch in the driveway:
This is my favourite way to draw a hopscotch because it’s so easy to do. Making a quick bubble with a stroke of the chalk is simpler and faster than drawing squares.
Exploring the alphabet with sidewalk chalk:
This is a great way for preschoolers and toddlers to practice letter recognition outside. I draw all of the letters of the alphabet, and then hand out stones or pinecones to serve as “markers”. I call out letters, and the children have to place their markers on the corresponding chalk letter. It’s also fun for the children to search for all the letters in their name, and put their markers on them. You could do this activity with numbers as well.
