These 10 Chalk Art Ideas Can Transform Your Sidewalk!

Target Practice

Draw a sequence of targets and assign different point values based on their size and distance from the start — the more points, the further away and smaller the target. Toss bean bags with your children and keep track of their points. This would also be a lot of fun on a hot day if you used water balloons.

Create amusing silhouettes

Use chalk to trace each other, just like they do in criminal shows Then, for a fun self-portrait, fill in the details – but not too many. Remember, mystery is exciting. You can fill in these silhouettes with colours of your choice!

Firefighter Game

Make a tower with flames on top of it. The windows should be numbered. The youngsters may then practice counting by rolling the dice. “Ascend” to that number “window.” Use a hose to wash away the chalk and extinguish the fire.

Your sidewalk’s got game

Make a life-sized game board of their favorite game (Chutes & Ladders, Candy Land, Checkers, etc.) and let your young players play as the game pieces. Let the passers-by participate and have a fun day!

Sidewalk Simon

Simon, a renowned game from the 1980s, was just as popular today as it was back then, for both children and adults. This life-sized version of the memory game, on the other hand, gets your kids outside and active! Make a Simon board with your children’s favorite colors, then yell out colors and have them jump to them. This is a fun and instructive game!

Summer Chalk Art Photo Ideas 

What’s better than a day out in the sun on a warm day with your best buds? No matter the weather outside, create your own sunshine when you draw up a gorgeous, spring-y summer scene. Let your imagination know no bounds, draw up a lagoon, a sun, the beach. Anything and everything!

Make an Olympic-worthy course

Find a big open place to sketch in, such as your driveway or the playground’s basketball court. Get creative, choose your scenario! Remember, art is just as wild as the artist’s imagination!

Makeshift Courts

Want to play badminton, tennis, volleyball, or any other outdoor activity that requires a court, but don’t have enough space in your backyard? Make one in the driveway! Sure, drawing the court may take some time, but imagine the joy on your kids’ faces when they see their fresh new outdoor court!

Chalk Art Puddles

Who says you can’t use sidewalk chalk when it rains? Who says you have to wait for the sidewalks to dry and the puddles to disappear? These are fantastic occasions to create these lovely rainbows and “art puddles!” This is a great exercise for those stray pieces of broken chalk that have accumulated at the bottom of all of our buckets, plus what youngster doesn’t enjoy jumping in puddles?

Chalk Art Constellations

This exercise is an excellent way to combine science with fun! Read about constellations with your children, then take them outdoors to sketch their favorite constellations! With a few rocks for “stars,” you can create your own galaxy in your own garden!
