Cross Crafts For Kids (Ideas For All Age Groups!)

Looking for a new proven fact that everyone in your loved ones will like doing together outside?

That is among my favorite methods for getting some fresh air with my three kids, while being creative and creating something beautiful for our neighbors.

Creating mosaic chalk art is truly easy, and only requires two supplies and is a superb creative outlet. Additionally it is really calming (which is something we all need at this time in the world.)

Additionally it is a lovely way to share messages and symbols of love and kindness along with your neighbors.

The response we’ve gotten so far for the giant mosaic chalk heart we wear our garage has inspired my kids to think up new ideas for the other two garage doors!

This is a pretty straight-forward art project that won’t require many supplies, and likely you already have them in your home.

Here is what you’ll need to get started:

Painter’s tape (a 1.88 inch painter’s tape provides you with smaller lines, a 3-inch painter’s tape was used in the picture shown which means that your lines are bigger and spaced out more.) Don’t worry, this won’t remove paint or leave a mess in your painted surfaces, Sidewalk chalk in a handful of colors, Bandana if you do not desire to breathe in the chalk in the air while you’re filling in the spaces (optional), Arm strength

Where you decide on to place your chalk mosaic is important. You can wear it the sidewalk or your driveway, but would you like others to notice it?

Should you choose want to fairly share the sweetness of your art with others, simply pick a spot in your garage (like we did in the picture) or the side of your dwelling that’s within view of your street or you’ll see in the backyard when you yourself have guests over.

Painter’s tape will stick better at first glance of your dwelling or garage too, with regards to the form of ground you’re working with.

Find a design you like and commence to outline it with the tape. You may need to help keep your pieces short in order to build in curves and roundness since painter’s tape is straight. Once you’ve finished the outline of your design, begin to operate pieces through the middle to generate various sized and shaped areas. A mixture of big and small spread evenly through the design can give it balance. Once you feel you’ve finished your taping, it’s time for you to start the fun part – filling it in with color!

Fill out each space on your own design, alternating colors and making certain there’s no spots which can be seen through the chalk. The higher and thicker the coverage, the more your design will pop once the tape comes off! You may want to color the top bits of the mosaic depending on the height of your kids, but why shouldn’t Mom and Dad enter the fun, too!

Once all of the spaces have already been filled completely with chalk, it’s time for you to take the tape off. Gently peel the tape off, going slow (although it’s not messy like paint and that you don’t risk smearing anything), until all the tape has been removed. Then, stand back and admire the beautiful artwork you simply created.

When you’re willing to repeat, or think of a brand new design, simply spray it with a hose to have the chalk off and allow it dry.

Here’s the look we created on our garage door, below. It’s a giant heart. My kids have received so many compliments about how exactly wonderful it seems, but additionally, how touched folks who are on walks through our neighborhood get the symbol in this time of what our world is faced with.

Sidewalk art is really a fun and creative way to make art and be outside.Summer, weekends and school breaks are great times for children to be able to build critical thinking skills and problem-solving techniques, while doing something fun and engaging like making art.

Many companies make sidewalk chalk products. I have discovered the best color coverage to be with Crayola products. Crayola’s items are non-toxic, easy to clean off an outdoor surface and designed for children. Here are a few great ones.

These items can be found at most of the major retailers as well as online. Along with the old-school colored chalk, you will find products which can be new and innovative as well.
