Looking for a new idea that everyone in your household will like doing together outside?

This is certainly one of the best ways to get some fresh air with my three kids, while being creative and creating something beautiful for our neighbors.

Creating mosaic chalk art is actually easy, and only requires two supplies and is a good creative outlet. Additionally it is really calming (which is something all of us need today in the world.)

It is also a lovely way to generally share messages and symbols of love and kindness together with your neighbors.

The response we’ve gotten to date for the giant mosaic chalk heart we placed on our garage has inspired my kids to believe up new ideas for our other two garage doors!

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

Some tips about 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 utilized in the picture shown so that your lines are bigger and spaced out more.) Don’t worry, this won’t remove paint or leave in pretty bad shape in your painted surfaces, Sidewalk chalk in a small number of colors, Bandana if you don’t want to breathe in the chalk in the air while you’re filling out the spaces (optional), Arm strength

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

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

Painter’s tape tends to stick better on the surface of your dwelling or garage too, depending on the kind of ground you’re working with.

Find a design you prefer and commence to outline it with the tape. You may need to 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 one’s design, begin to perform pieces through the middle to create various sized and shaped areas. A combination of big and small spread evenly throughout the design will give it balance. Once you are feeling you’ve finished your taping, it’s time to start the fun part – filling it in with color!

Fill in each space in your design, alternating colors and making sure there’s no spots that can be seen through the chalk. The greater and thicker the coverage, the more your design will pop when the tape comes off! You may want to color the most effective bits of the mosaic with respect to the height of your kids, but why shouldn’t Mom and Dad be in the fun, too!

Once all 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 you never risk smearing anything), until most of the tape has been removed. Then, stand back and admire the beautiful artwork you simply created.

When you’re ready to repeat, or consider a fresh design, simply spray it with a line to have the chalk off and allow it dry.

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

Sidewalk art is a fun and creative way to produce art and be outside.Summer, weekends and school breaks are great times for kids to have the ability to build critical thinking skills and problem-solving techniques, while doing something fun and engaging like making art. As kids get bored, as they often claim to complete, below are a few exciting ways to participate in the arts in an outside environment. You, too, could possibly get on your own knees and join in the fun!

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 scrub off an outside surface and created for children. Here are a few great ones.

These items can be found for the most part major retailers as well as online. As well as the old-school colored chalk, you can find products which can be new and innovative as well.
