Chalk City Review and Giveaway

by Jacqui Stewart

My daughter loves anything to do with playing outside.  Writing on my sidewalks and coloring each of our steps a different color is just another day in the life of our home.  She writes messages in chalk to people who walk by and all that fun stuff.  Chalk City takes this fun outdoor activity to a whole new level.  See information from their site:

Chalk City® is a family of outdoor toys that combines two activities that boys and girls love—playing with sidewalk chalk and playing with riding toys. Kids of all ages can easily use the Road Maker®, Road Sign Stencils and Obstacle Course Stencils for hours of fun.

Check out the great video they have on YouTube:

The website also has a page with fun activities your child can use.  They have a listing of local places you can purchase their product HERE and you can also purchase on Amazon!  These retail anywhere from $11.99 for stencils to $39.99 for the full kit.  Not a bad price to help keep the kiddo’s busy when school is out, and bonus?  Off the electronics and the couch!

Does your child love to play with sidewalk chalk?  What is their favorite thing to draw?

For more summer fun with chalk, check out Sidewalk Chalk Activities for Preschoolers.  You can also find more great posts about preschool activities on our resource page, where you can link up your own craft and activity ideas too.

 

This product was provided for review by ChalkCity, who also offered a giveaway to one lucky 5MinutesforMom reader. All opinions expressed are the reviewer’s own.
