We draw on asphalt

“It is true, well what to hide here, children love, very much like to draw on paper, on asphalt, on a wall...“ Which of us did not draw in the childhood chalk on asphalt? Such surprising traces appeared on a gray uneven surface. And so magically the piece of chalk disappeared, leaving only small color “bit“ in a hand. And asphalt blossomed surprising paints, and the yellow sun shone with uneven beams, and in the blue sky the balloon with some unclear beings onboard soared...

Drawings on asphalt

Drawing on asphalt is not only cheerful occupation during walk. It both creativity, and knowledge by the kid of world around. To draw asphalt pieces of chalk it at all not the same as to drive on paper a pencil or a brush. There are absolutely other feelings. And for kids - preschool children creativity is not so much result, how many process. And it is not so important actually what drawing eventually will appear on asphalt.

So, take on walk a korobocha with asphalt pieces of chalk. The child, the more thickly is younger and have to be more long small. It will be convenient to kid to squeeze a thick piece of chalk in a cam, and it will not wound the handle about asphalt. And to kids will be more senior more conveniently to draw small pieces of chalk. It is clear, that the more flowers will be in your set, the better. So, what to draw? Let the kid solve, and you support his ideas. Children are loved when mother not just stands apart and observes, and is directly involved in drawing. Draw flowers, butterflies and ladybugs, either racing cars, or dinosaurs - in a word what is the most attractive to the child at present. The least artists like to finish drawing mother`s drawings. Mother draws a cloudlet, and the kid a rain. Mother represents a hedgehog, and the baby - needles at him on a back. Draw different geometrical figures and suggest the child to finish drawing them so that they turned into something recognizable. What the circle is similar to? It can be both apple, and a balloon, and the sun, and a chicken. And into what the square will turn? In a bag, the TV, the robot. Suggest the baby to lead round mold chalk for sand, leaves of different trees. So at you beautiful silhouettes will turn out. They can be painted over, and it is even better - to shade. Excellent exercise for development of small motility!

If the pool was to

near, you are waited by fascinating creative game. Let the kid will dip a piece of chalk in water and draws on asphalt wet chalk. He will receive absolutely other feelings and result. And still it is possible to draw chalk on stones, splinters of a ceramic tile, on a wooden intake or bark of a tree. You should not worry about the left marks. The first rain completely will wash away all your arts. And it is still interesting to draw with continuation. If you created the asphalt masterpiece in a secluded corner of the yard where it will not be erased legs by passersby and if there was no rain at night, drawing can be finished drawing next day. Or perhaps other young artists also will join you. Then drawing will become even more remarkable.

Classical classics

A you remember

how we played in the childhood in classics? How did “bats“ from boxes from shoe cream or lollipops, precisely verified their weight, pouring sand, and then rolled up an insulating tape? Modern children, alas, in classics almost do not play. And this game is good in many respects. Both balance develops, and coordination of movements, and feeling of healthy rivalry. But whether not to try to play to us in classics with the kids? Let`s train them in this game. They, in turn, will play in classics with the friends. And, maybe, from our easy hand, such remarkable and useful domestic games will return gradually to the yards and to life of our children.

of Options of game in “classics“ great variety. But most often play so. On asphalt the game field from ten cages about 50 × is lined; 50 cm. Cages go two columns. The first is numbered by the from 1 to 5, second in the opposite direction - from 6 to 10. Sections 5 and 6 from corners unite the semicircular line: the platform for rest is formed. Play several people. The first player throws a bat into “the first class“ - a section with figure “1“. The player`s task, jumping on one leg, to banish a bat on all classes and to beat out from the game field. At the same time neither the player, nor bit should not get on the line. If it occurs, the course passes to the following participant. If “the first class“ is passed successfully, the player passes into “the second class“. Now it is necessary for it, without coming on the game field, to throw a bat into a cage with figure “2“ and already from there to drive it from a cage to a cage. It is necessary to possess a sufficient share of skill and dexterously to jump, and for a well-aimed throw of a bat in the necessary cage. The one who the first passes all classes wins.


It is clear that classics will be able to play “presents“ only the senior preschool children and children are more senior. Such accuracy and coordination of movements are not available to kids yet. But it is not an occasion to refuse game. Let`s try to adapt “classics“ for 2 - 3 - summer kids. Find quite wide site of asphalt, line cells of classics. They have to be small that small children`s legs could make jumps easily. Of course, the bat is not required to us yet. Show to the kid as it is necessary to jump from one square in another, trying not to attack the line. Let at first the baby jump two legs. For bigger fun put a toy which “got lost“ in the last section and she needs “to be helped out of trouble“. Absolutely small will just cross through lines enough. In process of improvement, suggest the baby to jump on one leg. Do not forget to train both the right, and left leg. Still it is possible to draw in addition in each cage a circle, traces or just to put on a leaflet from a tree. A task of the kid - to get legs precisely to the designated place. It is healthy if you jump with the baby in turn and, of course, sometimes too to attack the line...

Cheerful sciences

the least artists like to finish drawing mother`s drawings.

Together with pieces of chalk can go in for mathematics, to study the alphabet and mass of other useful things. And all this is cheerful also in game!

If you write to

in cells of “classics“ large accurate figures, then will help the child to learn quickly them and to master the quantitative account to 10. At first the kid will jump, and you - to consider, and then he also with pleasure will do it. In the same way it is possible to write in alphabet letter sections. Well - run in a section with a letter “A“! And now jump to a letter “M“! Or draw a twisting path from sections, and in cages write all letters of the alphabet one after another. The kid goes on a path or jumps from a section in a section and calls letters on which he steps. Agree that to jump and at the same time to remember letters - it is healthy!

A as about geometry? Draw contours of big geometrical figures on asphalt and suggest the kid to walk on them. At first take the baby by hand and walk on a square, sentencing: “We with you go on a square. And now ran - ran on a square!“ Then, standing aside, give to the kid of a task: “Well - run around!“ Or so: “Run rather in a triangle! And now in rombik!“ Very quickly the baby will learn all geometrical figures, any knowledge acquired by children through the movements is remembered much better.

you Give to

the movement!

Asphalt pieces of chalk will help you to organize cheerful outdoor games with the kid. Draw the long twisting line on asphalt and suggest the baby to walk on it as though it is the narrow bridge over an abyss. For the smallest draw “bridge“ short and direct. It is possible to draw a path from two parallel lines and to go on it, trying not to turn from a way.

Ask the baby to run

on this path, to walk on socks, patches, the back, to jump the rehouse or sideways.

still the kid can present to

A that he is a driver of the car. On the drawn road it is possible “to go“, to twist a wheel and to bibikat. And it is possible to imagine that you steer train and you go on the most real rails: chukh - chukh - chukh, that is that! And as it will be cheerful if mother draws the real labyrinth on asphalt. Same as happens in children`s magazines, only big. And on it it is necessary to drive not a finger, and to run small legs. Not so - that is simple, it appears, to find a way out!

Sports occupations will become even more fascinating than

if you manage to attract in allies and other mothers. Kids with pleasure will play the relay offered by you where not competition, but fun and the movement will be a main objective. Draw on asphalt at some distance from each other two lodges. In one lodge at you there will live toys (cones, stones etc.) which need to be “moved“ in other lodge. Now each kid takes on a toy and carries it in other drawn lodge. Then comes back for following and so until all objects are not transferred. It is possible to draw chalk on asphalt a straight line or a twisting line and to suggest kids to take place on the bridge from one lodge in another.

The the child, the more thickly is younger than
and have to be more long small.

Spread out to ways at children the sheets of paper brought from the house, and let them stamp on “hummocks“, passing from one leaf to another. It is possible to put between “lodges“ of a branch and large stones or bricks in order that children through them stepped. In a word, options there is a great variety. And still it is possible to be trained in accuracy. We draw chalk on the earth circles, we depart from them on several steps and in turn with the kid we throw stones, trying to get to a circle. Who was more well-aimed? not to play

A to us “crosses - zeroes“? It is possible to put crosses and zeroes chalk, and it is possible to play slightly differently. Line the game field. As crosses spread in cages, for example, stones, and as cone zeroes (flowers, acorns, etc.). When game ends, collect counters and begin to play at first.
