At A Mustard Seed Toys, we make products that we’re happy for our own kids to use . . . and we can be picky parents! Our chalk products came from our daughter’s love of arts and crafts. She loves to keep our driveway decorated, and I’m sure your kids will too.
Sidewalk chalk is an affordable toy that’s good for hours of fun. And, it’s great for stretching your kids’ creative abilities as they dream up and create animals, castles, vehicles and more.
<h2>What Your Kids Will Learn with Our Jumbo Sidewalk Chalk</h2>
– Develop <strong>fine motor skills</strong> as they play and use chalk to learn shapes, colors, and patterns.
– Love <strong>playing all of the games you did as a kid</strong> as you introduce them to hop-scotch, mazes, four square, tic-tac-toe, and more!
– Immerse themselves in their<strong> imaginative worlds</strong> while they practice and hone their artistic abilities.
23 Jumbo Pieces of Chalk in 7 Colors
Our non-toxic chalk conforms to ASTM D 4236.
We’ve tested our chalk thoroughly, and it works well on concrete, asphalt, chalkboards, chalkboard paint, and wood (tree houses and playground sets). I’m sure there are more too, we’d love to hear what your kids like to decorate with their chalk. Feel free to post their latest creations on our Facebook page or Instagram using #amustardseedtoys.

Introduce your kids to hop-scotch, mazes, four square, tic-tac-toe, and more! Here’s an idea for learning with a bean bag toss to get you started:
Sidewalk Chalk Bean Bag Toss or Sponge Toss
How to Play:
A bean bag toss is a simple but fun game that has many educational ideas. If you don’t have a bean bag, a wet sponge is a great substitute on those hot summer days.
To play the game, you can draw different shapes and instruct your kids to toss to a certain shape.
For numbers, you can mix up the numbers and have your daughter name the particular number that the bag lands on to score a point.
Since you have chalks with different colors, you can easily substitute colors for the numbers or shapes. With older kids, you can start working in larger numbers as solutions to math equations that you write out beside the game.
You could even use common objects to teach words to really small kids like the moon, sun, stars, birds, trees, etc.
- Sight words
How to Make it More Challenging:
- Work on filling in operations for math equations
- Identify the next shape in a list of elements with a pattern
- Say a word and let your kids toss the bag to the first or last letter in the word
