When we landscaped the front yard a few years back, we did not take the grass all the way to the garage. We left a "driveway" area that we eventually want to have paved.
In the meantime, it looks very unfinished. There are some rocks and plenty of weeds that take up residence there. Sometimes there is a trailer or truck parked there.
In an attempt to make this unfinished space look more finished, I added some small paving stones for a tic tac toe game and hopscotch.
Near the corner of the driveway and the grass I added the 9 stones for the tic tac toe board.
I painted some rocks black and rust (colors on hand) for the x's and o's. Chalk could also be used by the little tic tac toe players.
I haven't taught my little blonds how to officially play hopscotch yet, but for now my little one enjoys "hopping" all over it. :)
