Advanced Four Square Game

Since its Summertime and it is getting dark later families could opt to have their night outside. I found this game you could play! Phoebe LOVES sidewalk chalk so this is a great game for little ones.

Advanced Four Square Game
This ain't your father's four square.

Sidewalk chalk
Good bouncing ball (like a kickball)

1. Draw a 6- to 10-foot square on a paved surface, such as a driveway.

2. Divide the larger square into four smaller squares, number the squares 1 to 4, and have each child stand in a block.

3. The player in square 4 serves the ball by bouncing it in his square and tapping the ball into another square.

4. The player in that space must tap the ball (after one bounce) into another kid's area, and so on, until someone misses the ball, lets the ball bounce twice, or sends it out of the grid.

5. The player who misses the ball steps out and the remaining players rotate up through the numbered squares. If you are playing with more than four players, a new player enters the game at square 1.

The player who is out waits in line to re-enter the game once square 1 is open again.

6. Whoever is now in square 4 serves the ball to resume play.


  1. Oh I so remember 4 square!
