Art Activity For Children: Chalk Drawing

My nephew came to visit us from Vietnam, and as it is very hot there and he lives in an apartment, it is difficult to play outside. This is a very simple art activity for children, all it requires is a driveway and a packet of chalks! There is no clean up, as the picture will eventually wash away in the rain.

Vincent loves Lightening McQueen, so that was the first thing he wanted to draw. He is a very detailed child with an amazing sense of perspective for his age - he was not even 5 when he did this!

He meticulously drew the car, complete with the eyes for headlights, talking all the time as he drew, and the result was fantastic as you can see from the photos!

We often used to give the kids chalks to draw with outside when my children were younger, and you can incorporate games such as hopscotch, or maths games if you want something more educational. You could have a quiz and get them to draw specific shapes or get kids to draw around the outside of each other.

If you have a group of children, you can have a theme and they all can draw things for the theme, say under the sea, or a garden.

I've used chalk drawings as a fundraiser for a school fete. We ran a competition, grouped according to ages and gave each entrant their own space and a packet of chalks. People paid a $1 to vote for the best drawing in each category, and of course the winners got a prize.

So, simple art activity for children, that costs very little, but can be used in a variety of ways.
