Summer is over. And, I have packed most of our summer gear away. It’s at this time of year, I always find myself with the remnants of products in-hand, unsure if I should save them or throw them out. Mostly-used sunscreen, bubble solution, and broken down chalk all make this list. While I don’t have a proposed solution for the two formers, I love creating learning activities using chalk.

On the topic of play-based learning, I would love to remind you of some incredible opportunities to engage your children through play. First, the book, The Undeniable Power of Play, focuses on learning through play and hands-on activities. Want to engage in more playful learning with your kids? Check out the #PowerofPlay52 challenge on Instagram, and join in the fun! Car themed learning activities were a recent prompt, and here is a list of tons of car activities that you can try with your own kids at home. Stay up to date by joining The Undeniable Power of Play on Facebook too!

Now for that broken down box of chalk! Here are 14 learning activities using chalk!

  1. I shared The Undeniable Power of Play with my sister who is a speech pathologist and audiologist with special needs and autistic children. The school will not allow her to download anything on the iPad they provide, so I provided her your website (as well as ViewsFromaStepStool and Twitchetts). She called to thank me and plans to visit when she can. She said she found some great tools to use with her “kids”. Keep up the good work!
