We have finally had some good weather and cooler temperatures so we could get out and just play. Up until now, if it wasn’t involving water we really didn’t want to do it, which can make summers and finding fun outdoor play activities tough. I was so excited to try out our Chalk City Activity Kit as well as get the kids out there on their bikes and scooter having fun in the sun. Have you heard of Chalk City? Here is what the Chalk City® Activity Kit includes:
- 1 Road Maker® Holds two pieces of sidewalk chalk and creates roadways or courses for kids to run or ride around on their favorite riding toy.
- 3 Road Sign Stencils: Between the Road Maker® chalk lines, kids can learn the rules of the road with the Stop Sign, Turn Left/Right, and Straight Ahead Stencils
- 3 Obstacle Course Stencils: Between the Road Maker® chalk lines, kids can enhance their outdoor physically active play time with the Jumping Jacks, Spin Left/Right, Hop Both Feet/Left Foot/Right Foot Stencils
- 20 pieces of Sidewalk Chalk
- 1 Activity Booklet Offers a variety of additional games and cities to enhance the Chalk City toy experience
- Highways and byways – well that is what we called it but you create your own streets and draw buildings or schools on the ground
- Take on an obstacle course – with stencils and suggestions for ages 3 and up and 7 and up
- Three circle
- Maze tag and
- Hot shot basketball
It’s not just sidewalk chalk, but it includes these stencils and tools that creates a whole world of imaginary play.
So here is what you do, decide on a game or activity or make up one of your own. Of courses my daughters wanted to include flowers with their “city” so off they went to add colorful flowers along their “roadway.” Let the kids decide.
What did we like about the Chalk City Activity Kit?
- loved the big fat, sturdy chalk
- stencils were perfect for adding the finishing touches to their creative, imaginary and sports play.
- the tools kept their little fingers from getting rubbed by the pavement and also left them plenty of time and energy to play (You know how kids get everything set up and then don’t want to play anymore?”
The kids loved it so much they wanted to take it to school. The PE teacher was thrilled because they kit contains so many things the students can do. They now had a few more activities for the class and she decided to use it as an incentive to get other things done, they they may not enjoy as much.
The younger daughter’s bike day at preschool was a big hit because this year instead of teachers getting out there an creating the course the kids could too.
I really like that it’s not just for families, but great for playdates with groups and good for both preschool and elementary school.
What game do you think your family would love to play? Obstacle course? Maze tag? Or riding their bikes and scooters along the “highway.” These are my girls three favorites!
