An extra colourful autumn with the EXIT Toys play tips

Red, orange, yellow…. during autumn the leaves of the trees turn into the most gorgeous colours. In this season you can still enjoy playing outside and crafting with all of nature’s beauties. With the EXIT Toys autumn play tips your autumn will be even more colourful!

Play a life-sized board game with pavement chalk

Are you in the mood for a board game but would you also prefer to play outside? Create your own outdoor board game with pavement chalk! You can play the game with at least 2 persons.

This is what you need:

6 colours of pavement chalk

A dice

Pen and paper

 

This is how you play the game:

Step 1

Use the pavement chalk to draw squares on the sidewalk. Draw them one after another so you create a path. For a playful effect you can let the squares form an ‘S’ or a circle. This forms the basis of your life-sized board game.

Step 2

Write ‘Start’ at the beginning of your board game and ‘Finish’ at the end of it.

Step 3

Colour the squares with pavement chalk. Use a different colour for each square. After colour 6 you start over with colour 1, 2… and so on. You can also colour the pavement tiles to create squares for your board game.

Step 4

Think up fun game instructions for the different colours and write them down with pen and paper, for example:

Yellow = make a little dance

Orange = sing a song

Blue = make 3 turns

Pink = go back to start

White = jump as high as you can

Green = stand on one leg for 5 seconds

Step 5

Let the game begin! All participants stand on ‘Start’. Now the players take turn in throwing the dice. The person whose turn it is moves the number of steps shown on the dice. He or she then carries out the instruction of the colour on which he or she lands.

 

The first person to reach ‘Finish’, wins!

Go go-kart-racing on your self-made racetrack

Are you ready for some more action? Use your pavement chalk to make a racetrack and race the stars out of the sky just like Lewis Hamilton! This activity can be done from 2 persons onwards.

 

This is what you need:

Pavement chalk

EXIT go-kart

Stopwatch

 

This is how you do it:

Step 1

Use the pavement chalk to draw a racetrack. Do this in a safe place like in a school yard or a playground. Draw the racetrack wide enough so your EXIT go-kart fits between the lines.

Step 2

Draw a start and finish line on your racetrack.

Step 3

Agree on how many laps you will be racing.

Step 4

The first participant takes the go-kart to the starting line. Ready, set, go! Try to drive the agreed number of laps as fast as possible, while someone else records the time. Repeat this for every participant.

 

Who sets the fastest time?

Decorate your (play)house with an autumn wreath

Head out and collect those beautifully coloured autumn leaves. Then let them shine in your EXIT playhouse or house by turning them into an autumn wreath!

 

This is what you need:

Autumn leaves

Cardboard plates

Glue

Scissors

A string

 

This is how you do it:

Step 1

Cut out the middle of the cardboard plate, leaving only the outer edge. This will be the basis of your wreath.

Step 2

Use the glue to stick your collected leaves onto the plate. Do this for the entire edge so you will get a nicely filled wreath.

Step 3

Tie the string to the wreath.

Step 4

Find a beautiful spot in your (play)house and hang up the wreath. Ta-da!

Pinecone pendants are also great for your (play) house. Here is what you need and how to make them.

 

This is what you need:

Pinecones

Strings

Glue

Coloured beads

Possible paint and mini pompons

 

This is how you do it:

Step 1

Tie a string to the bottom of a pinecone. You can glue the string for extra strength.

Step 2

Thread the beads onto the string.

Step 3

Make a loop at the end of the string. This way, the beads won't fall off and you can hang up your creation now! You can also decorate the pinecone with paint or glue mini pompoms on it.
