    Bonnie, I love these ideas. My girls often play with sidewalk chalk and I’ll definitely try making an obstacle course with them.

    Great ideas for using sidewalk chalk! You can also do a science experiment by adding vinegar and baking soda to your chalk pictures. It’s a lot of fun!

    These are great ideas, Bonnie! I used to love drawing with chalk in the driveway when I was a kid. I sent our little one outside the other day with a bucket of coloured chalk and was presented with a huge drawing of a monster truck, lol Fun way to spend part of a summer day.

      When I was a kid, we didn’t have a paved driveway or sidewalk so I couldn’t do this – so I’m having fun doing it with my girls! :)

    These are great ideas! We usually do most of these when we bust out the chalk! It is so much fun!

    Great tips. My kids love their chalkboard easel, I’ll have them try drawing on the driveway as well. It’s been ages since they’ve done that.

    Thanks for this! I’m pinning it to use this weekend with Max – we’ve been bored stiff this summer with all the rain we’ve had, but this weekend should be nice :)

      Around here we’re waiting for some rain to wash away all our pictures so we can draw some more!!! So the rain can be good if you’ve been busy with chalk. :) Oh, and finding a puddle with chalk is also fun – it turns into chalk paint (for slightly messier fun!).

    Love these ideas! We do not have a playset in our yard (we live in an association) so sidewalk chalk is a MUST at our house. It’s great to get some new ideas besides “hey, kids, draw something!”

    When I was a kid, we always played hopscotch. Love the “draw around the body idea. Often you can find the big chalks at a dollar store – super economical way to have fun.

    Growing up in the city, we, of course, had lots of sidewalk and pavement to draw on. My mom would create a game for us that entailed a huge circle and rules similar to hopscotch. We would play for hours. I wish I remembered what she called it.

    My daughter loves to play hopscotch and draw rainbows all over the sidewalk.
