Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
From Freeze Tag to Double Dutch, this bright and lively companion to Sidewalk Chalk presents some of the best traditional street and sidewalk activities ever. For every game, you'll find out how many people can join the fun, plus instructions, tactics, and tips. Charming childlike drawings in crayon, plus diagrams, capture a sense of joy and illustrate the rules of play, too. A kid alone can try Seven Up, for example, as long as there's a ball and a wall. Do Shoebox Bowling; enjoy some Sardines (a kind of reverse hide-and-seek where "It" hides and the group searches); and have fun with that old favorite, Kick the Can. Check out how limber everyone is with Limbo, a Jamaican dance-game. Spin around and leap over a twirling rope in Whirligig. The good times will keep on going!
