RECESS GAMES: DIY TWISTER WITH CHALK

What were your favorite memories of recess?

by Rachel

Mine were playing four square and twister. I loved rainy days as that’s when my teacher would pull-out a twister mat and a spinner card and we would see which of us were fast enough to contort ourselves onto the correct colors. Recess was the highlight of my day. Today, Dannon wants you to know that they are Rallying for Recess.

Now as a homeschooling family, recess is still the highlight of my day! We enjoy playing twister outside with our neighborhood (also homeschooling) friends. We recently made our circles on the driveway with chalk and colored a giant dice with the different options. Roll the dice to find out what color you need to move to next! Don’t have an empty driveway? You can spray paint twister onto your yard.
