Summer is finally here! Some of my favorite things about summer are the fresh watermelon, refreshing smoothies, trips to the pool, and endless outdoor activities. There are just so many fun things to do outside when it’s warm! One outdoor activity that will never be outdated is sidewalk chalk. In fact, it is such a beloved form of art that it’s been around since the Stone age, dating back to the 16-century! Drawing on the sidewalk is just so much fun, and kids love it!

I have many fond memories as a child using chalk to play games. Hopscotch and four-square were my personal favorites! Below I have compiled a list of some amazing chalk games, activities, and art that you and your kiddos will absolutely love. Sidewalk chalk is the perfect activity for a long summer day. Have fun!
