Chalk City Giveaway

Chalk City Activity Kit

Do your kids love sidewalk chalk? I don't know what it is about sidewalk chalk, but my kids will play with it for hours. I like sidewalk chalk since it's an outdoor activity and I like my kids to be outside as much as possible.

I was sent a Chalk City activity kit to review and giveaway. My kids were very excited to see all the stencils and new chalk! I flipped through the included activity book and saw several great ideas for kids of all ages. Which brings me to my favorite aspect of this toy-it will be something that my kids play with for years to come! There are games for older kids and obstacle course for younger kids.

I started off by making an obstacle course for my kids. Since they are pretty young, I made a short course. They loved it and took turns going through the course and then running back to the beginning and starting all over again. This lasted for about 20 minutes!

"I did it!"

My husband had a great time using the road maker to make the kids a path way and a huge circle to jump in and out of the "boat." The circle became a boat after the kids decided that the roadway was a dock and so naturally the circle had to be a boat. You just have to love that imagination!

After I made the obstacle course I did something that I'm pretty sure the manufacturer did not have in mind when they made the stencils. My kids are not allowed to go past the mail box one way and past the realtor sign the opposite way. They aren't exactly the best listeners when it comes to this rule, so I took the stop sign stencils to reinforce my rule. It worked like a champ, thanks Chalk City!



Buy It

This is a great toy for your kids! I know that we will get more use out of this once it cools off in the fall. I love that I live in a city where my kids get to play with summer toys almost all year long!
