Chalk portraits! Have a buddy do an outline and then get to work on a self-portrait. Bring a judge in to guess whose portrait belongs to who for prizes.

Bounce a Shape! You call out the shape and they have to bounce the ball on it from a stationary point. A great lesson in shapes and hand eye coordination. (Do it with letters, numbers, states, or whatever subject you’re trying to tackle!)

  1. We’ve done one similar to the shapes games you mentioned. I drew a bunch of shapes and then had my son jump on whatever shape I tell I’m too we also did this with letters.

  2. We do pictionary in the driveway. My daughter is 4 so we keep it real simple or we whisper an idea and both draw it together and have daddy guess.

  3. Then you’ll love a book that I used recently with my two years olds’ class- Chalk by Bill Thomson. The kids loved it!
