I was walking through my neighborhood today, and saw a group of kids decorating my sidewalk with chalk. What a fun way to practice letter formation, draw people and other representational figures, and copy shapes and designs. I know that I still find it fun myself to see a creation emerge where there was only black or gray cement. In addition to working on writing, a child can strengthen their legs by squatting while chalking. She can then work on increasing hand/grasp strength by “erasing” her work by spraying water from a squeeze bottle. Enjoy this great springtime activity with your kids!!
