game drawn with chalk
What You’ll Need
  • Chalk
  • Three pebbles
What You'll Do
  1. Draw a triangle with chalk. Divide it horizontally into five sections and number them from 1 to 5, with 1 at the base and 5 at the top.
  2. Draw a line about two feet below the base of the triangle.
To Play

Players stand behind the line and take turns tossing the three pebbles onto the pyramid. The highest total score for each round wins.

Extend the Fun

Younger kids: Remembering a string of numbers can be challenging. Write your score in chalk on the sidewalk. Add up each turn. What is your score after your third turn?

Older kids: Change the numbers in the pyramid so the sections go by 10s (10, 20, 30, and so on). Play again and see who gets to 100 first.
