Sidewalk Chalk

Sidewalk Chalk

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!!
