We are sharing an Easy Sidewalk Chalk Art project that anyone can do. This Mosaic Sidewalk Chalk Art is a good means for the youngsters and adults to play outside.
A very simple and fun way to have outdoors and away from electronics is to produce some chalk art in your driveway or sidewalks. There are so many creative ways to produce art with sidewalk chalk. This really is our favorite Sidewalk Chalk to use however, you can make some up almost anywhere nowadays.
Mosaic Chalk Art can be done a couple of different ways. We chose to complete a square shape chalk art , but you could do a center, or even a square…really any shape you want. Then you definitely just make smaller sections inside the design with the tape. Any shape will work. Just be sure you keep the tape even so that the lines will line up whenever you display 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 create your mosaic chalk art , sweep the location on your own sidewalk you will be using. Take your painter’s tape and tape off a square or rectangle if you don’t have an all natural separation like we did.
We wanted to produce our spaces triangles, so just tape each section such that it forms a triangle. There’s no rhyme or reason, just make sure they are any size or shape you want. Run your hand across the tape such that it is sealed to the concrete and will provide you with crisp chalk lines. Color each section with an alternative color of chalk. We were pretty random with your colors but just made sure that people didn’t have two of the exact same colors next to each other.
In the event that you rub your fingers over the chalk , it will really smooth it out and fill in all the creases and bumps. This extra step was worth every penny for the overall look of the art at the end!
When all the squares are filled in pull up the tape and enjoy your beautiful mosaic chalk art.

Chalk art is really a fun way to invest a couple of hours out in the sunshine…or shade depending on the season and where you live. We will try our hand at several different shapes to enhance this one! I really like that keeps the kids busy and entertained…and it’s actually a lot of fun that mom and dad and the older teenagers will want to participate in the fun too!

Well known method to play with chalk is with pretend play, making our own life size roads for the children to operate a vehicle around on. We like to have all the family involved in creating the scene for his or her little city round the roads. This a great activity because the youngsters love using their imagination for this and it gets them moving!
Messy play fosters creativity and imagination. Children can gain independence in messy play while they select the shapes, materials and pictures they wish to play with. I like to encourage messy play around I will with my kids. As you will see my daughter dives right to the messy play! Chalk covered hands = a happy day!

It is a long-standing tradition at the house for the Easter Bunny to leave a chalk drawing in the driveway. The kids would find this surprise initial thing Easter morning, once we left for church. That silly bunny always manages to hop through the drawing leaving his colored footprints behind, as he hops up to the home and away again. I hadn’t done a drawing in years; but a year ago, Luke’s two grandnieces where coming for Easter dinner. That meant our tradition must be resurrected–and this time I was recruiting some help. So, after everything was ready indoors, Rory and I put on our figurative bunny ears and hopped on out to the driveway–armed and dangerous with sidewalk chalk.
