20. Chalk

Children's Activities - ChalkChalk is an inexpensive and a nearly perfect play activity for young kids. It can be used to play games (hopscotch), create pictures, practice letters, experiment with colour and cleans up easily!

Children enjoy experimenting with chalk both on a chalk board and also outside on the pavement. Try different sized chalks – chunky chalk is great for little hands. For brighter colours try soaking the chalk in water for a few hours.

Create fun learning games like a garden treasure hunt exploring colour, shape, numbers and textures.
