When I was a kid, I was fascinated by a cartoon character named Simon who would use his imagination to climb into his Land of Chalk Drawings. Whatever he drew, be it a rocket ship, a zoo, a herd of dinosaurs, or a soccer game, Simon would find himself on great adventures in amongst his creations. Fast forward to my own life as a parent and sidewalk chalk has become a spring and summer playtime staple for my children. Chalk now comes in 48 colours, in glitter, and in neon. This is an oldie as in kids have been playing it for over years but a definite goodie. The rules are simple and kids can either draw their own course with the chalk or have a parent help.
The absolute best way to learn is with a group of friends who already know the rules and can guide you through the learning curve. Well, don't worry. You can think of it a lot like a collective choose-your-own-adventure book. One player prepares a fantasy story of sorcery and adventure, then the rest of the players take charge of characters in that story and gather together—preferably around a kitchen table—to cooperatively tell the tale. Maybe the story you'll tell is a mystery. Maybe it follows the classic hero's arc.
