Are your kids going a bit stir crazy? Sure, they are. It’s probably the same case for every house in your neighborhood. With social distancing comes boredom.
There are ways that a neighborhood can come together (from a safe distance) to support one another.
A friend of mine’s neighborhood created their own chalk art walk night. The host made flyers and left them on each neighbors’ doorstep. The flyer announced a date for the chalk walk and asked people to decorate the sidewalk in front of their homes.
On the evening of the walk, families went out to enjoy the neighborhood’s creativity. All while keeping proper social distance, of course.
Tip: Should you not want to deliver flyers, there are ways to connect with your neighbors online. Many communities have Facebook groups. Nextdoor.com is another good site for communicating with neighbors.
Create Stained-Glass Chalk Art in 3 Steps
With this simple technique, even the most artistically challenged can create something to be proud of.
Frame Your Drawing
You’re going to need tape. Work with what you have around the house. It just needs to stick well enough to clean concrete.
Color the Sections
Time to pull out your sidewalk chalks and go to town. Don’t worry about drawing on the tape, it isn’t staying.
Pull Up the Tape
Peel back the tape to reveal your masterpiece.
