We’re 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 really simple and fun way to get outdoors and off of electronics is to generate some chalk art on your own driveway or sidewalks. There are so many creative ways to create art with sidewalk chalk. That is our favorite Sidewalk Chalk to use nevertheless, you can make some up almost anywhere nowadays.
Mosaic Chalk Art can be achieved a couple of different ways. We chose to accomplish a rectangular shape chalk art , but you may do a heart, or even a square…really any shape you want. You then just make smaller sections inside the shape with the tape. Any shape will work. Just make sure 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 following two materials, Painter’s Tape Sidewalk Chalk
Directions To create your mosaic chalk art , sweep the region in your sidewalk you will be using. Take your painter’s tape and tape off a square or rectangle if you don’t have a natural separation like we did.
We wanted to create all of our spaces triangles, so just tape each section so that it forms a triangle. There is no rhyme or reason, just make sure they are any size or shape you want. Run your hand over the tape so 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 this colors but just made sure that we didn’t have two of the same colors next to each other.
In the event that you rub your fingers within the chalk , it will really smooth it out and complete all of the creases and bumps. This extra step was worthwhile for the overall look of the art by the end!
When all the squares are filled in pull up the tape and enjoy your beautiful mosaic chalk art.

This a good activity because the kids love employing their imagination because of it and it gets them moving!
Messy play fosters creativity and imagination. Children can gain independence in messy play because they choose the shapes, materials and pictures they want to play with. I prefer to encourage messy play around I could with my kids. As you will see my daughter dives right in to the messy play! Chalk covered hands = a happy day!

It has been a long-standing tradition at our house for the Easter Bunny to leave a chalk drawing in the driveway. The children would find this surprise first thing Easter morning, 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 house and away again. I hadn’t done a drawing in years; but this past year, Luke’s two grandnieces where coming for Easter dinner. That meant our tradition must be resurrected–and this time around I was recruiting some help. So, after everything was ready inside the house, Rory and I wear our figurative bunny ears and hopped on out to the driveway–armed and dangerous with sidewalk chalk.
