1. Create photo backdrops

This creative multimedia activity is easier than it sounds. Brainstorm ideas for fun photoshoots like floating in space, under the sea, playing with dinosaurs, or anything else you can think of. A super simple one could be to draw a crown to become a king or queen! Creative kids — and adults — will love drawing these backdrops onto the chalk. When you’re done, get kids to pose by lying down on the sidewalk and take some photos of the final scene.
