Fun with Chalk

The wheather has been really nice lately and we spend as much time as possible outdoors going on walks, going to the park, and in the back yard.  This was a fun game we did using chalk.  I wrote the alphabet letters in upper and lower case and called them out randomly so MD could find the letter called out, run to it, and jump on it.  He laughed and enjoyed it, and it got him to do some physical activity.  The idea for this came from Family Fun Magazine.
Afterwards I gave him a cup with water so he could dip the chalk in to make chalk "paintings".  It's been nice doing things outside lately.

  1. Love the idea! My son loves using sidewalk chalk - and I even get down on my hands and knees and draw with him (although, it sometimes hard to get back up!)
