Driveway Drawing Activities
Get outside and stretch your imagination.
Attach a piece of chalk to the end of 2 long sticks using masking tape. Use your driveway/footpath as the running track, now try different types of races, skipping, hopping - notice how your lines change.
Lie down on the driveway and get a member of your family to draw around you with chalk. What bones/organs are in your body? What do they look like and where they are located? Draw these in using different coloured chalk.
Make a strange shadow with your body and get a family member to draw around it. Now add some horns, a tail and other details to make yourself into a one-of-a kind monster.
Draw up some different size frames along your driveway, now fill the frames with drawings based on the things you can see outside. Can you see a distant mountain, a bird, a wheelbarrow? Perhaps you could make a family gallery where everyone takes a turn making their own drawing.
We would love to see your Shadow Monsters and Driveway Galleries.
