What are some fun, interactive things to paint on a boring back fence?

I am aiming for an awesome and interactive back yard for the kids (2, 5, 7) and want to make my boring back fence more interesting. I was planning on painting some of the white panels with colored blackboard paint, leaving some as just the chalkboard surface, but adding some activities to some others by painting with white paint. For instance painting a target for throwing things at (wet sponges, mud, balls), a noughts-and-crosses grid, some dots for the dot-game, maybe a heading for the mud pie kitchen menu of the day. What are some other ideas that would look cool and spur more fun?
