Looking for a new proven fact that everyone in your family will relish doing together outside?

This is certainly one of my personal favorite ways to get some oxygen with my three kids, while being creative and creating something beautiful for the 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 at this time in the world.)

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

The response we’ve gotten up to now for the giant mosaic chalk heart we wear our garage has inspired my kids to believe 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’s what you’ll need to get started:

Painter’s tape (a 1.88 inch painter’s tape gives you smaller lines, a 3-inch painter’s tape was found in the picture shown so your lines are bigger and spaced out more.) Don’t worry, this won’t remove paint or leave in pretty bad shape on your painted surfaces, Sidewalk chalk in a number of colors, Bandana if you never 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 use it the sidewalk or your driveway, but would you like others to view it?

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

Painter’s tape has a tendency to stick better at first glance of your house or garage too, depending on the form of ground you’re working with.

Find a style you want and begin to outline it with the tape. You may need to keep your pieces short so you can 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 produce various sized and shaped areas. A mixture of big and small spread evenly throughout the design will give it balance. Once you feel you’ve finished your taping, it’s time to start the fun part – filling it in with color!

Fill out each space in your design, alternating colors and making certain there’s no spots which can be seen through the chalk. The greater and thicker the coverage, the more your design will pop when the tape comes off! You will need to color the most truly effective pieces of the mosaic with regards to the height of your children, but why shouldn’t Mom and Dad get in the fun, too!

Once all the spaces have now been filled completely with chalk, it’s time and energy 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 prepared to try it again, or think of a brand new design, simply spray it with a line to have the chalk off and allow it dry.

Here’s the style we created on our garage door, below. It’s a giant heart. My kids have received so many compliments about how wonderful it seems, but in addition, how touched people who 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 make art and be outside.Summer, weekends and school breaks are great times for children 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 accomplish, below are a few exciting methods to participate in the arts in an outside environment. You, too, will get on your own knees and interact the fun!

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

These items can be found at most of the major retailers in addition to online. As well as the old-school colored chalk, you can find products that are new and innovative as well.
