These sidewalk chalk ideas are so awesome! Seriously, some people so creative!? There are so many fun ideas and so many great photo opportunities! I wish we had an asphalt driveway so we will try more of those out in the home!
Do you get a mental block when you yourself have an empty canvas before you? And your kids are saying, “Draw something! Draw something!” – I usually wind up drawing a flower, or sometimes a rainbow, but I’m stumped. I’m the same way with a giant blank driveway and sidewalk chalk, except it’s so much worse! What are you designed to draw on a giant blank driveway!? (I’d probably still draw my typical flower and rainbow…).
We’ve a large box of sidewalk chalk sitting in the closet right now. But to share with you the truth, we aren’t NEARLY this creative with it. I believe the situation (besides our creativity) is that people have an outdoor patio stone driveway and the same with this patio in the backyard. So the children take the chalk colours and fill in all the little, rectangular bricks in different colours. Sometimes they venture into the play house attached for their swing set and they’ll colour the walls within too (they’re not supposed to, but wow, they really moved fast that very first time before I noticed, and now they know they are able to break free with it. Little tricksters…)
If there was just one item to get us through the long summer days, it would be Sidewalk Chalk for the win. Not merely can it be super inexpensive, but it’s great for all ages and has unlimited play potential. And really, what’s better than a “messy” activity with NO clean-up?!
We’ve pulled together our favorite sidewalk chalk ideas into an epic set of learning activities, games, imagination spark-ers, and get-them-active ideas which will keep your chalk repertoire fresh all summer long. Plus some totally cool interactive chalk art that you don’t wish to miss!
So grab your box of chalk and head outside with your kids all night of nonstop fun!
And then one of our baby sitters let the children colour a few of the bricks on our house last year. That has been a bad idea. Don’t colour the bricks on your property unless you want to get a scrub brush and figure out how to have everything off. This has been there for pretty much a year now, and despite pelting rains and lots of snow storms it’s as bright as the afternoon it happened. Perhaps I really could find a polish brush and scrub it off, but who has enough time for that??
This list is fantastic if you need a little bit of inspiration to take your sidewalk chalk from the boring game of X’s and O’s or hopscotch to a fun “Wow, that’s so amazing!” adventure! There are tons of great ideas! And better still, you can take a photograph from an additional floor window and keep consitently the memory as a keepsake! I love these ideas!
From princess crowns to under sea adventures, you will find loads of fun ideas to help you produce a whole new world in your driveway!
