Sidewalk Chalk Mystery Grid Drawing

Inspired by Almost Unschoolers, we made our own sidewalk chalk grid mystery game.

We found a fairly simple online grid to print off. I added a couple of extra lines. Labeled the back and then cut out the squares.

I drew out and labeled a grid on the sidewalk.

I gave the kids the squares, but didn't tell them what the picture was of. They got started drawing. 

I went around their lines in the color that would be most recognizable to them and started filling in as they worked.

It wasn't long until a frog began to take shape. 

It was so fun, they wanted to start inside on graph paper.

Which led to more grids...

Ye Old Pirates with Treasure Island & a Giveaway

July's book share with Poppins Book Nook is Ye Old Pirates. We choose Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island.

Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson tells the story of the brilliant, devious Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins' (a young boy) adventures seeking the lost treasure of Captain Flint on Treasure Island. There is much more to Long John that meets the eye and when they are very close upon the treasure, the cunning Silver shows just how murderous he really is. We would recommend this book for ages 12 and up.

Here's our round up of crafts, activities, field trips, reading guides, lesson plans, maps, art, music, and fun to go along with Treasure Island.
