Comment below to tell us which idea is your favorite, and tag us on social media @yoobi with #chalkplay so we can see your creations!
1. CLASSIC HOPSCOTCH
Who doesn’t love a classic game of Hopscotch? Let’s jump our way to the highest number and see who can make it without falling! For younger kids, you can teach them to write their numbers, or even add and subtract and the colorful method will make it fun.
Get competitive with a few rounds of outdoor tic-tac-toe. Everyone can pick their favorite color and see who will be the champion in the ultimate mind game.
3. CLASSIC CHALK OBSTACLE COURSE
For those who love to stay active and creative outdoors, how about an obstacle course drawn and designed by you? Challenge each other to see who can get through the most courses, or who can create the most inventive course!
4. YOOBIFIED CHALK OBSTACLE COURSE
Want to step your obstacle course a notch? Check out this awesome interactive one created by our very own Yoobi intern! SNAP, SPIN, WHISTLE and HOP – there are SO many more challenges to add to the game!
5. PUDDLE ART
Springtime can sometimes mean rainy days…but who says you can’t play with chalk when the ground is still wet? No need to wait until it’s all dry - put on those rain boots and make your own rainbows and puddles of art!
6. HUMAN SUNDIAL
Use chalk to tell the time! Have a friend stand upright and mark the spot with an “X”. Then, trace their shadow using your favorite color of Yoobi chalk and write down the time of the day. Repeat this 3-4 times while the sun is still out (make sure to wait in between traces!). Watch the time pass as your shadow changes with the sun!
7. ART DAY
What better way to let your creative juices flow than to have a free-for-all! No rules, no guidelines – just go all out!
