We’re sharing an Easy Sidewalk Chalk Art project that everyone can do. This Mosaic Sidewalk Chalk Art is a good means for the children and adults to play outside.
An extremely simple and fun way to have outdoors and off of electronics is to create some chalk art on your own driveway or sidewalks. You can find so many creative ways to produce art with sidewalk chalk. That is our favorite Sidewalk Chalk to use but you can pick some up almost anywhere nowadays.
Mosaic Chalk Art can be done a few different ways. We chose to do a rectangular shape chalk art , but you can do a center, or even a square…really any shape you want. You then just make smaller sections inside the form with the tape. Any shape will work. Just ensure you keep consitently the tape even so the lines will fall into line once you pull off the tape at the end.
We recently created this fun mosaic sidewalk chalk art using just the next two materials, Painter’s Tape Sidewalk Chalk
Directions To generate your mosaic chalk art , sweep the region on your own sidewalk you will be using. Take your painter’s tape and tape off a square or rectangle if you do not have an all natural separation like we did.
We wanted to make our spaces triangles, so just tape each section so that it forms a triangle. There is no rhyme or reason, just make them any size or shape you want. Run your hand across the tape such that it is sealed to the concrete and will give you crisp chalk lines. Color each section with a different color of chalk. We were pretty random with this colors but just made sure that people didn’t have two of the same colors close to each other.
If you rub your fingers on the chalk , it’ll really smooth it out and fill in all the creases and bumps. This extra step was worth it for the entire look of the art by the end!
When most of the squares are filled in pull up the tape and enjoy your beautiful mosaic chalk art.
MOSAIC CHALK ART
Chalk art is just a fun way to spend a few hours out in the sunshine…or shade depending on the time of year and where you live. We are going to try our hand at several different shapes to increase this 1! I enjoy that keeps the kids busy and entertained…and it’s actually plenty of fun that mom and dad and the older teenagers may wish to interact the fun too!
Pretty satisfying right?! In the event that you enjoyed this activity, you might be interested in looking at some of our other fun Activities for Kids. There are some great ideas for you personally and your loved ones to take pleasure from while you have a little additional time at home together. Sunlight is out so meaning it’s time for some backyard fun! Sidewalk chalk is definitely at the the top of list and you will find so many way’s to play with it. And of course that it’s even fun for grown-ups to get in on the drawing fun, too!
Well known way to play with chalk has been pretend play, making our own life size roads for the children to operate a vehicle around on. We like to get the whole family associated with creating the scene for their little city round the roads. This a great activity because the children love using their imagination for this and it gets them moving!
Messy play fosters creativity and imagination. Children can gain independence in messy play as they select the shapes, materials and pictures they would like to play with. I want to encourage messy play around I could with my kids. As you can see my daughter dives right in to the messy play! Chalk covered hands = a happy day! And if you’re worried about the little mess, there’s no need because it’s all washable!
It is a huge long-standing tradition at our home for the Easter Bunny to leave a chalk drawing in the driveway. The kids would find this surprise very first thing Easter morning, even as we left for church. That silly bunny always manages to hop through the drawing leaving his colored footprints behind, as he hops around the home and away again. I hadn’t done a drawing in years; but last year, Luke’s two grandnieces where coming for Easter dinner. That meant our tradition needed to be resurrected–and this time I was recruiting some help. So, after everything was ready inside the house, Rory and I placed on our figurative bunny ears and hopped on out to the driveway–armed and dangerous with sidewalk chalk.
