This one’s a bit like the chalk bodies on the kitchen floor, except kids lie outside on the dirt (they’ll dust off) and you draw around them with a twig. Or they draw around each other. Then comes the fun bit. Embellish the yard kid with leaves for patterned shirts, tufts of grass for hair, stones for eyes, feathers for earrings, etc. The possibilities are endless. Sometimes, a few days after rain, the dirt is dry on top but slightly moist, and darker, underneath. Perfect!
