Welcome to the JHML Kids Poetry Place! We have several poems about playground fun and playground safety for parents, teachers, and children to enjoy. Background music files are provided to play while reading the poetry, playing, coloring or creating art projects.

Sidewalk Chalk

With chalk we write our name,
Make a picture, or draw a game.
Hopscotch board, or beanbag toss
Make a line to hop across.

Colorful fun for all who play
Clean-up is easy. Rain washes away,
All of the chalk-time fun and games,
Pictures and things I wrote today.

I return the chalk to its proper place.
Wash my hands and check my face.
Dust everything off my clothes and shoes
I put away the things I use.

Safety first for chalk-time play
Makes sidewalk fun for another day!
