We’re sharing an Easy Sidewalk Chalk Art project that anyone can do. This Mosaic Sidewalk Chalk Art is a great method for the children and adults to play outside.

Really a simple and fun way to get outdoors and away from electronics is to create some chalk art in your driveway or sidewalks. You will find so many creative ways to create art with sidewalk chalk. That is our favorite Sidewalk Chalk to use however you can make some up almost anywhere nowadays.

Mosaic Chalk Art can be done several different ways. We chose to complete a square shape chalk art , but you could do a heart, or a square…really any shape you want. You then just make smaller sections inside the design with the tape. Any shape will work. Just be sure you keep carefully the tape even so the lines will make when you pull off the tape at the end.

We recently created this fun mosaic sidewalk chalk art using just the following two materials, Painter’s Tape Sidewalk Chalk

Directions To generate your mosaic chalk art , sweep the region on your sidewalk that you will be using. Take your painter’s tape and tape off a square or rectangle if there isn’t an all natural separation like we did.

We wanted to produce all of our spaces triangles, so just tape each section such that it forms a triangle. There is no rhyme or reason, just cause them to become any size or shape you want. Run your hand across the tape such that it is sealed to the concrete and will give you crisp chalk lines. Color each section with a different color of chalk. We were pretty random with your colors but just made sure that we didn’t have two of exactly the same colors next to each other.

If you rub your fingers within the chalk , it will really smooth it out and fill out all of the creases and bumps. This extra step was worth every penny for the general look of the art at the conclusion!

When most of the squares are filled in pull up the tape and enjoy your beautiful mosaic chalk art.

It is a long-standing tradition at the house for the Easter Bunny to leave a chalk drawing in the driveway. The kids would find this surprise initial thing Easter morning, as we left for church. That silly bunny always manages to hop through the drawing leaving his colored footprints behind, as he hops around your house and away again. I hadn’t done a drawing in years; but last year, Luke’s two grandnieces where coming for Easter dinner. That meant our tradition had to be resurrected–and this time around I was recruiting some help. So, after everything was ready indoors, Rory and I put on our figurative bunny ears and hopped on out to the driveway–armed and dangerous with sidewalk chalk.
