Buying new idea that everyone in your family will love doing together outside?

That is one of my personal favorite methods for getting some fresh air with my three kids, while being creative and creating something beautiful for the neighbors.

Creating mosaic chalk art is truly easy, and only requires two supplies and is a great creative outlet. It’s also really calming (which is something most of us need at this time in the world.)

It is also an attractive way to fairly share messages and symbols of love and kindness along with your neighbors.

The response we’ve gotten up to now for the giant mosaic chalk heart we put on our garage has inspired my kids to believe up new ideas for the 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.

Here’s 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 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 handful of colors, Bandana if you do not wish to breathe in the chalk in the air while you’re filling in the spaces (optional), Arm strength

Where you select to place your chalk mosaic is important. You can put it on the sidewalk or your driveway, but are you wanting others to view it?

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

Painter’s tape has a tendency to stick better on the surface of your dwelling or garage too, with regards to the type of ground you’re working with.

Find a style you prefer and start to outline it with the tape. You may need to help 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 your design, begin to operate pieces through the middle to create various sized and shaped areas. A mixture of big and small spread evenly through the entire 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 out each space on your 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 need to color the very best pieces of the mosaic with respect to the height of your children, but why shouldn’t Mom and Dad enter 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 that you do not risk smearing anything), until all the tape has been removed. Then, stand back and admire the beautiful artwork you just created.

When you’re ready to do it again, or consider a fresh design, simply spray it with a line to get 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 wonderful it looks, but in addition, how touched people that are on walks through our neighborhood find the symbol in this time around of what our world is faced with.

Sidewalk art is just a fun and creative way to produce 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. 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, can get on your own knees and join in the fun!

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

These items can be found at most 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.
