Sidewalk Chalk Mosaic Art

Our state just started phase 1 of opening back up after quarantine lockdown. Since we are homeschoolers we have been able to stay on top of our schooling. For the most part, our school year is done with the exception of finishing our math curriculum.   Six kids cooped up can get pretty crazy. Even though things are opening up in our county our family has opted to continue to stay home and wait and see what happens. The time home has been a blessing to our family. Our schedule is free so we are spending more family time together. In the days to come, I will be sharing several fun things we have done, maybe you will want to try them with your kids!

 

Getting fresh air during this time is a must! We have a pool which the kids have been using daily but here in Florida we already have summer weather so it’s super warm out. Thankfully we have large shaded trees in our front and back yard that we are utilizing the shade to do activities underneath them without sweating half to death! 

Hands down, sidewalk chalk mosaics has been my kid’s favorite thing. It is easy, colorful, and fun to look at! Incredibly even with rain and our sprinklers on it has held up for a week! When people go for walks they are able to enjoy my kid’s creation which makes my kids happy! 

 

Materials needed

If your state is still on quarantine lockdown and you do not have the materials at home do not fret because you can find them easily on-line. 

Colored chalk

Painters tape

 

First, decide where you want to make your mosaic art at, on the sidewalk, driveaway, etc. Then plan on how you want your mosaics. We opted for the sidewalk because it has lines separating each cemented area. Decide if you want squares, triangles, etc. Next, use the painter’s tape and start taping down how you want your shapes on the area you are making the masterpiece at. 

Once all of the painter’s tape is down then start using different colored chalk and fill in these areas that are open. Make sure that the area is fully colored even up to the tape.  My kids got really creative, they did some patterns in some of the areas instead of using solid colors. Finally when everything is colored then pull off all of the painter’s tape. This is the exciting part to see the completed project. Now your kids have transformed a super cool piece of artwork that everyone can enjoy and there is no mess to clean up inside your house! 

 

What fun art have you made with your kids lately outside?
