10 Ways to Play and Learn with Chalk!

Click on the green titles for a link to each post explaining the activity further, if you need more info or variations on the activity. Most of these are self explanatorySmile


Wet Chalk Painting!

Wet the side walk first and the colors are so much more vibrant! Great for a hot day!

Circle Jumping Game!

Draw different color circles and jump across using just one color path.

Letter Jumping!

Circle with letters in them so that they can jump as they chant their alphabet! Don’t fall in the water!

Hop the Planets!

Draw the planets and the Sun and have the kids space jump to each planet as the call out it’s name!


Bike Path

Draw a path with arrows to ride bikes or push cars! Not enough space? Just draw a scaled down version for them to drive cars on!

Erase the Number Game

Whisper a number in their ear or show it with your fingers and they have to erase that number till they are all gone! You could do the same thing with letters or words!

Obstacle Coarse

Draw squiggly lines to follow, straight lines to jump over, spirals to spin on! The possibilities are endless!

Counting Practice

Circles with numbers to jump and count! Great way to slow a child down who rambles off their counting too fast!

Name Writing

Write it once and then let them trace over it in every color of chalk! Great fine motor work and beautiful results!


Following Directions

Draw shapes and play a follow directions game. Make it as fast and silly or as slow and simple as you want!
