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

That is one of my favorite ways to get some outdoors 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. It’s also really calming (which is something most of us need at this time in the world.)

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

The response we’ve gotten so far for the giant mosaic chalk heart we put 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 keep these things in your home.

Here’s what you’ll have to get started:

Painter’s tape (a 1.88 inch painter’s tape gives you 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 in pretty bad shape in 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 out the spaces (optional), Arm strength

Where you select to put your chalk mosaic is important. You can wear it the sidewalk or your driveway, but would you like others to view it?

Should you want to share the wonder of your art with others, simply select a spot in your 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 have guests over.

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

Find a style you prefer and commence to outline it with the tape. You will 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 your design, begin to operate pieces through the center to generate various sized and shaped areas. An assortment of big and small spread evenly through the design can give it balance. Once you are feeling you’ve finished your taping, it’s time and energy to start the fun part – filling it in with color!

Complete each space on 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 very best pieces of the mosaic with regards to the height of your children, but why shouldn’t Mom and Dad enter the fun, too!

Once most of the spaces have now 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 only created.

When you’re ready to try it again, or consider a new design, simply spray it with a hose to have the chalk off and allow it dry.

Here’s the style we created on our garage door, below. It’s a huge heart. My kids have received so many compliments about how wonderful it looks, but in addition, how touched people who 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 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, because they often claim to do, below are a few exciting ways to participate in the arts in an outside environment. You, too, could possibly get on your knees and participate in the fun!

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

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