Twister was always a fun game to play as a child. Mostly to see how tangled up we could get before falling down. We’ve been having to get creative with our sidewalk chalk lately, and decided to draw games on the ground instead of the usual flowers and letters. This Shapes Twister game has been one of my kids’ favorites and they ask me to draw out whenever we get the chalk back out.
I drew a 3×3 grid on the ground and then asked the kids what shapes they wanted in each. We usually do: triangle, rectangle, circle, oval, heart, rhombus (diamond), trapezoid, hexagon and octagon. Pentagon, square and crescent get in the mix sometimes, too.
Once it’s drawn, I ask them to stand on the same square and then call out different shapes to place their right foot, left foot, right hand, and left hand on. My preschooler can usually keep up, but for my younger toddler, I am just happy if she hops to the right shape.
We’ve also made Cornhole Sidewalk Chalk by just drawing large rectangles and small circle at the top:
And one of our favorites – Double Bubble Pop! We draw bubbles on the ground and “pop” them while also blowing bubbles and chasing them to pop!
