Children love to draw with chalk, but often do it only in the summer and exclusively on pavement.

We at Mellberry decided to fix this and offer an InfoBoard that will help develop fine motor skills and spatial thinking of a child with the help of games, as well as help parents fix the stages of growing up a baby: his hobbies, height, favorite food, dream profession, favorite cartoon, book and promise (goal) for the coming year are in the photo. InfoBoard This is a double-sided slate board for drawing with chalk or chalk markers, a photo decor for children’s parties and a toy that develops creativity. First side – is a board with pre-drawn fields that need to be filled in with chalk or markers. Second side – blank slate board for drawing, learning and playing. The tradition of photography is the main idea of ​​the InfoBoard. We want your child to remember years later which fairy tale was his favorite and which profession was the most attractive at 5,6,7 or 10 years old! Not all of us remember such details of our childhood, but with the InfoBoard it will be as easy as possible to fix them, just take a photo next to the InfoBoard or hold it in your hands! But still, in this review, we want to take a closer look at the back of the InfoBoard – a clean slate board for drawing.

Drawing is the cornerstone of a child’s mental growth.

Drawing helps the development of fine motor skills, spatial thinking, fantasy, personality formation through self-expression and is the basis of a child’s creativity. Chalk, in turn, is a non-standard material for work and creates additional but necessary difficulties for children to draw or write. Drawing with chalk, children learn to control pressure and hone their writing skills on the board, which will definitely come in handy in school.

Below we offer 5 chalk board games for the whole family!

blind artist

The rules are simple: participants write words on pieces of paper. For example: dog house, tree, house, sun, closet, car. The player who goes to the board pulls one of the pieces of paper and, without showing anyone, tries to depict the word written on this piece of paper on the board with a blindfold. Not being able to see your “masterpiece”, scribbles are obtained, the meaning of which will have to be guessed by the rest of the players. The first guesser pulls a piece of paper with a new word and goes to the blackboard to draw. This game helps to develop muscle memory and spatial thinking of the child. Initially, it will be difficult for everyone to draw even the simplest “sun” (try to close your eyes and draw the sun on a piece of paper), but if you play this game regularly, the child’s brain will no longer rely on vision alone.

Spatial thinking is the foundation of balanced development.

Unravel the threads

This game for toddlers helps develop the attention to detail and perseverance that kids need. The task of the parent is to draw intricate lines of different colors starting in one of the corners of the board and ending in the other, while indicating any number from 1 to 10 at the end of the intricate line. The task of the kid is to show the whole path of one of the lines and name the number to which the line that he chose stretches.

Snakes and ladders

For this game, the child and the parent must draw their playing field with crayons. Having numbered it from 1 to 35, the same number of “snakes” and “ladders” are randomly distributed throughout the board, while the head of the snake is on a higher number, and the tail leads down to one of the numbers. The player “rolls” down the snake. The staircase, on the contrary, leads up and its beginning should be located below its end. On the stairs, the player rises to the line above!

Purpose of the game: Participants throw a die and move their chips around the board (any small toys, for example, from Kinder Surprise), hoping not to be “swallowed” by the snake, so as not to be on the lower numbers, but to climb to a higher number using the stairs. The first player to reach 35 wins.

The game helps to develop drawing skills, mental counting, memorize numbers and trains attention and perseverance.


The most rewarding game on our list! The task of the parent is to draw a “maze” on the board, and the task of the child is to go through it in the shortest possible time. After the child goes through the maze, his task is to draw his own maze and ask the parent to go through it. Compilation of mazes is incredibly useful and helps to focus on the details while maintaining mindfulness and developing perseverance and self-control. When compiling labyrinths, children are forced to go through their labyrinth over and over again complicating it and hiding it behind many dead ends. In the future, such skills will be useful to the child in everyday life (working with maps or traveling through the navigator) Labyrinths are difficult, but fun!

Tic Tac Toe

Familiar from childhood, the game remains relevant today and remains useful for developing strategic thinking and planning skills. The game helps the kid to think 2-3 moves ahead, assuming the opponent’s possible moves. Extremely simple, but extremely useful.
