Sidewalk chalk is a fun and inexpensive way to spend time having fun with your family outside. All it takes is a sidewalk or driveway and some chalk, and you have a fun afternoon ahead! Not only is it an instant canvas for your family’s art, but there are lots of games and activities to enjoy as well. The only limitation is your imagination!

Fun Sidewalk Chalk Ideas for Families
These fun sidewalk chalk ideas will be sure to keep your family entertained for hours. Talk about frugal family fun! We go through a lot sidewalk chalk in our home and Crayola Sidewalk Chalk is my favorite brand and buy it when I can find it on sale. I think it’s the most durable and has the most vibrant colors.

Curious about your game of CHOPPED with the chalk. Can you give some details? My grandson loves the show and it would be so fun to do! Thanks!
Sure! Sometimes I draw ingredients in squares on the driveway that represent the mystery ingredients and then they “make” their dish. Other times I just announce what the basket ingredients are and they draw them or just start making their dish. Each person has their own area for “cooking” and we have a designated pantry area that they can run to if they feel like it.
We also play this with the things we find in our yard. Leaves, flowers, sticks, rocks, whatever. They make the most lovely creations this way and it’s probably my favorite.
