Chalk Bullseye

Chalk Bullseye (4)

We’ve been having fun with chalk this week, whether traditional chalk or our own homemade version. For this game, we simply grabbed a piece of chalk and got drawing! You’ll combine a little exercise with a little math – always a bonus.

For the first variation, I drew a traditional bullseye, and labeled each inner circle ten points higher than the last. This is great for kids who are learning to count by tens.

Dip a sponge in a bucket of water, than take your best shot at the bullseye. Bigger kids can even keep score over multiple rounds (make the sidewalk your scoresheet!) for addition practice.

For something a little simpler, we also set up a shape and number review.  Write down numbers 1 through 5, each inside a different shape.

As he threw, I had Travis shout out which one he was aiming for, i.e. rectangle 4 or heart 5.

We lost our sunshine before we had very much time to play with these games, but we still had fun while the warm weather lasted!
