A Fun Sidewalk Chalk Game For All Ages
Fine Motor Skills
What can you do with sidewalk chalk? The possibilities are endless! This simple bottle-cap bounce sidewalk game is portable and super-easy to play.
Don't have any sidewalk chalk on-hand? Try making your own sidewalk chalk or sidewalk paint.
What You’ll Need:
- Bottle cap
- Sidewalk chalk
- Small bouncy ball
What You’ll Do:
Put a bottle cap on the line between two squares on a slate or cement sidewalk, or draw two connected squares on asphalt with sidewalk chalk.
- Players face each other and step one square away from the bottle cap. There should be two squares between the players.
- Players take turns tossing the ball at the cap, trying to make it move. The first person to push the cap past the other player’s square wins.
Extend the Fun
Younger kids: Change it up by throwing the ball underhand or by rolling it. How does that change the way the cap moves?
Older kids: Instead of a small bouncy ball, what else could you use to move the cap? What do you think would happen if you used a large bouncy ball?
