I love being outside with my kids and they love it when I play along with all their ideas! This week we decided to make a Chalk Obstacle Course and I’m so glad we did! We had so much fun with this that we asked all of our neighbors to join and do it with us! If you need some sidewalk chalk we have a huge round-up of all the best chalk deals for you too!
Chalk Obstacle Course
One of our summer must-haves is sidewalk chalk! And we are always looking for new ways to have fun with it. So this week we challenged our neighborhood to all put some sort of obstacle course or workout on their driveway for us all to do.
If you are needing Chalk, Amazon has a lot of different options in stock but some don’t ship for a while so make sure you check the dates before you order. Also I would keep checking back the supply seems to change daily!
The parents and kids had so much fun doing this! We started out with a huge hopscotch!
Then you got a short break from the hopping to run the zigzag! You can make the activities as easy or as hard as you want them to be. Some were easy like a balance beam but some houses had us doing high knee jumps and lunges!
Some of us may have gotten a tad dizzy on the spin course around the cul-de-sac.
More hopping but this time you hop from one Lilly Pad to the next!
My kids called this the crazy 8 run.
A few more running and jumping challenges towards the end.
This was so fun and something our entire family enjoyed. But most of all it got us moving and laughing! No matter if you do this with your just your family or you challenge your entire neighborhood it’s a good time and great way to get some exercise.
