Chalk Games – Hit the Target

On the school holidays, I made up a huge box of fun stuff to keep the kids occupied. One of the goodies I always have in stock is chalk. It’s so handy for many outdoor play ideas.  One of the games my children play is hit the target. They set this up themselves.

Cheap sponge cut up or pool balls


Bucket of water


1. Draw a target on concrete with different sized circles and whatever measure for each circle, the centre circle being the greatest number (e.g. 1,2,3,4,5 or 10, 20, 30, 40, 50).

2. Mark a throw line.

3. Put sponge or balls in a bucket of water and take aim and throw.  The wet sponge makes a mark.

I noticed my kids draw up a tally box too.
