Outdoor Fun and GamesBook - 2002
Chalk it up...for great fun! With a bucket of colored, neon, glittered, swirly, or even just plain white chalk, your fingertips, and the ideas in this charmingly illustrated book, the sidewalk is yours to play on and decorate. Write your favorite sayings, draw pictures, or play games with your friends or all by yourself. You can even create a big mess and nature will take care of it, because chalk just washes away. Start by making your own, if you'd like, with a simple recipe. Then let the good times roll by getting out and chalking the town with calendar creations that celebrate holidays--or come up with silly rebuses to catch the eye of everyone who walks by. Be a street artist, and design wild and crazy characters, or produce a maze. You've got game with chalked hopscotch boards, tic-tac-toe, a spin on basic jacks, and "jumbo jumps." Take a sidewalk safari--it'll really bring out the animal in you! Just copy a small part of your favorite beast--like a lion's mane or beaver's tail--and challenge your friends to figure out what it is. Whoever guesses right gets to finish the picture. And, all through there's lots of "chalk talk" where0 real kids tell their favorite "chalky" things to do!
