Sidewalk Chalk Games & Activities for kids. Fun outdoor play spring, summer, fall.,

I love lazy weekends when there is nothing planned & you can just go with the flow. On weekends like this, my daughter loves to play outside just in our driveway. She loves shadow play & playing with sidewalk chalk. Sometimes we like to add nature elements to our sidewalk drawings

We have a collection of rocks that we like to use to make art & crafts. We pulled out our rock collection and in between sidewalk chalk and some fun new games, we had a little bit of fun with land art.

My daughter and I first worked on a project together. We picked flowers & ferns and separated our rocks into piles by color & size. We formed a circle with our larger rocks and then filled in the center with white rocks, followed by a circle of orangish rocks, then darker ones and then a ring of flowers. We used ferns to form our rays.

When we were finished on our shared project, my daughter had an idea of her own.

She built a landscape with her ferns & added in mountains & a sunset with her chalk.

After our nature art fun, my daughter had a couple of extraordinary ideas that turned into some late afternoon fun for us.

She grabbed her chalk and began to draw a trail of cat paws. She asked me to pick up a chalk & help her finish her paw trail. When she was finished, she put down her chalk. “Come on, Mama. Follow me.” She hopped along her trail & followed each paw and had me do the same. She even drew a kitten at the end of her path.

She was giddy about her new game and then came up with another brilliant idea. She drew a short line with a loop and followed the line with her feet. I loved this idea, so we expanded on it and drew long curvy lines around our whole driveway.

We followed our dizzying trail up and down the driveway.

We switched back and forth in between our games & had a lot of giggles. We were both tired and covered in chalk by the end of our day.
