Making an easy sidewalk chalk obstacle course in your own drivewayis a great way to get kids outside, creative and moving. We have done this since our boys were young many times, and I love it because as they get older, they can build it themselves.
Sidewalks and driveways right at home are a great place to build an obstacle course. One of the advantage of doing it in chalk is that you don’t have to move obstacles out of the way should a car come along.
Some ideas to include
Run to the circle and jump 3 times
Hop across the line back and forth
Follow the arrow path and spin 4 times
Jump into each shape and say them (triangle, square, etc.)
Do a leap at the finish line
Jump through the boxes
Jump in and out of the circle
Do a cartwheel through the drawn ladder (but don’t touch any lines)
Dance party as you run around the circle
