Create a Sidewalk Chalk Obstacle Course

School is winding down for everyone and our kids are getting even more antsy in anticipation for summer vacation. You don’t need to buy a lot of fancy things to keep them active outside. Sidewalk chalk and a little inspiration can help your family to create a chalk obstacle course outside. Switch it up often to keep things fun and fresh! Get the details here.
