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

This really is among the best methods for getting some outdoors with my three kids, while being creative and creating something beautiful for our neighbors.

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

It is also a beautiful 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 wear 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 ask them to in your home.

Some tips about what you’ll want 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 found in the picture shown so that your lines are bigger and spaced out more.) Don’t worry, this won’t remove paint or leave chaos on your painted surfaces, Sidewalk chalk in a handful of colors, Bandana if that you don’t 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 are able to wear it the sidewalk or your driveway, but are you wanting others to notice it?

If you do want to share the beauty of your art with others, simply choose a spot on your garage (like we did in the picture) or the medial side of your house that’s within view of your street or you’ll see in the backyard when you have guests over.

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

Find a style you prefer and begin to outline it with the tape. You’ll 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 through the entire design will give it balance. Once you’re feeling you’ve finished your taping, it’s time for you to start the fun part – filling it in with color!

Complete each space on your design, alternating colors and making sure there’s no spots that can be seen through the chalk. The better and thicker the coverage, the more your design will pop when the tape comes off! You might need to color the most effective pieces of the mosaic with regards to the height of the kids, but why shouldn’t Mom and Dad get in the fun, too!

Once most of the spaces have 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 of the tape has been removed. Then, stand back and admire the beautiful artwork you merely created.

When you’re prepared to try it again, or consider a fresh design, simply spray it with a hose to have the chalk off and allow it to 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 looks, but additionally, how touched folks who are on walks through our neighborhood discover the symbol in now of what our world is faced with.
