we enjoyed chalk drawing

Some children started drawing on the concrete with crayons so we got out the chalk instead. All the walking children, from 1 year olds up, enjoyed this activity.
Drawing on the ground lets children experience scribbling with the whole body instead of just with the fingers or arm.


  1. This one of our favourite activities too - sometimes the old ones are the best. I am really enjoying your blog, I teach 3-4 year olds so love looking at photos & ideas from other settings. I look forward to following you :)

  2. Thank you Kierna C, Isn't it great how we can find so many ideas on the blogosphere. Was looking at your blog and we also don't use pumpkins much in Australia in craft but there are so many great ideas about them. (In general where I work we don't use food for play as some families economically feel food is for eating)

    1. So fun to draw with chalk! Have found some neat recipes to make homemade sidewalk chalk and such on Pinterest but have not made any yet. But reading your post about using chalk has inspired me to add some chalk fun to our week!
