Staying at home and being cooped up inside isn’t for everyone, but with a little thought, there are several fun and creative ways to break up the monotony of your day. Creating Stained Glass with Sidewalk Chalk is a great example.
We suggest going outside and creating bright and positive messages in your driveway and on the sidewalk. This is a great way to take a break from the COVID-19 pandemic, get some fresh air while still abiding by the guidelines and restrictions that have been put in place.
How do you make Stained Glass with Sidewalk Chalk?
You can make this chalk art design by adding tape to the ground in a fun geometric design. Let the kids make it by giving each child a long strip of painters tape & letting them make the next line… jump in if they need a little direction or help.
Next, give them as many different colors of sidewalk chalk as you can find in the house… the more, the merrier!
Then, let each child color a square until you have a beautiful stained glass chalk design. This is chalk art at its finest! It looks so awesome when it’s done. The kids loved the outcome!
Another fun idea would be to leave a few squares not-colored-in. Leave the chalk out and let your neighbors fill in the rest as they bike by or walk by. It would make it a fun surprise for the kids, seeing how it was filled in or added to by someone in the neighborhood. Taking some time to create positive messages on our driveway and side walk was a great way for our family to have fun during a time where we were getting a little stir crazy staying inside.
