::: outside chalkboards
We always have heaps of writing and drawing activities using a wide range of implements, one of the very favourites being the good old chalk and chalkboard. There are variations in the type of chalk we can provide such as the normal thin chalk, the fat sidewalk chalk or maybe even the egg shaped chalk that seems to be around at Easter time.
Although it is great to have it as an inside activity, we have noticed that many preschools have huge, fixed outside ones too.
The portable chalkboard outside is also a nice change.
We have a triple-sided one which is perfect for outside where a quick, sociable draw is in order.
We noticed this week that some children were riding their bikes around it, stopping for a draw and discussion …
then heading off and coming back again!
