Making Marks Outdoors

Making Marks Outdoors

Receiving the fabulous freestanding painting window and chalkboard from Newby Leisure has inspired me to share some of the ways we enjoy making marks outdoors…

So here are the wonderful resources from Newby Leisure. We currently have them standing on bricks because of their position in our outdoor area, but when we move them, they will come off the bricks, it is also possible to adjust it when you attach the feet in the first place!

So far, we’ve used them in a few ways, but if you have any more suggestions, I’d love to hear them!…

Simple Chalk on the Chalkboard

Mark making in an upright position is great for their gross motor skills and can be a super way to work on name writing…

The colours are more vibrant when the chalk is wet…

Actually a cleaning trolley, but perfect for this purpose. (I shared this previously in my Outdoors at My Setting post)…
