Well, color me happy! 🎨

Recently, we’ve seen a trend going around where you can use painter’s tape and sidewalk chalk to create some beautiful masterpieces! And while there are so many fun things you can do at home during quarantine, this one was definitely worthy of its own post. 😍

Make beautiful stained glass art right outside your home…

The Coronavirus pandemic can’t stop us from having fun and making the world more beautiful. Plus, with great weather making its presence known for many of us, we are all pretty much ready to bust outside!

Since basically everything nowadays is closed, we can’t think of a better way to spend some quality time together while staying home. 🏡

All you need to do this fun activity is some sidewalk chalk, painter’s tape, somewhere to color like a sidewalk or driveway, and your imagination!

Once you’ve placed your tape where you want it, color away! As a tip, a couple of my hip sidekicks said when you color in the sections, use your hand or an old sock to smooth it out and spread the chalk dust into the corners and spots you might have missed.

    We did this one day! So fun.

    Sidewalk chalk is like toilet paper right now! So hard to find!

      Cleaning up the garage, we came upon a lot of 100 chalk that we bought last year at Sam’s club. We were so excited.

      If you have a reason to grab some essential stuff at Target anytime soon maybe check there, Clare! I was just there the other day when I was getting groceries and they had a bunch of chalk. If you also look in the outdoor section where the outdoor toys are they had some really cute sets made by a brand called Sun Squad – here’s a link if you’re doing all your shopping online right now – https://goto.target.com/c/12116/81938/2092?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.target.com%2Fs%3FsearchTerm%3Dsun%2Bchalk

      Make your own chalk paint. Mix equal parts warm water with corn starch. Stir until no lumps. Add your choice of food coloring, and them “paint” away. We put ours into several paper cups and made multiple colors. I carried them to the driveway in a muffin tin to keep them from spilling.

        Forgot to mention that the colors are brighter once it dries. And food die can be found in the Easter aisle right now.

    You can also do this on glass doors or windows with washable paint with a little dish soap mixed in. More clean up but it looks really cool! A friend did it on his front door with his daughter and he said she had a blast!

    • Sara

      That does sound like something kids would love so much! Thanks for sharing your idea with us, Amyarlene!

    • Christal Kuchera

      Yes! We did this and it was tons of fun. I know friends have used -acrylic paint on glass (first putting on the painters tape). We used Crayola washable poster paint, which I poured a couple tablespoons in a muffin tin and added a drop of Dawn and a dribble of water in each color in the tin…then painted it on the window! So easy and my kids loved it!

    We did our driveway and it turned out awesome!

    • Sara

      I love hearing that! Thanks, Susan! If you ever share any photos make sure to tag us so we can see!

  5. Heather

    We used masking tape, it was cheaper for us. It was so much fun!

    • Sara

      That’s a great idea, too, Heather! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Klp

    I got painters tape at the dollar tree that worked well!

    If you don’t have sidewalk chalk, you can make sidewalk chalk paint with cornstarch and food coloring

    Since our community can’t have a traditional Easter Egg Hunt, we’re having a social distancing one where neighbors are coloring Easter eggs on their sidewalks and driveways for others to “find” on walks. My kids and I had a great time coloring some the other evening. The rain washed them away so now we’ll get to do it again.

  9. Jackie

    We have been doing this all week long! First we could only find like 6 sticks of chalk. I went on line to order some and OMG it’s crazy, they are all out and Amazon’s prices are ridiculous. For a bucket of chalk, that usually costs $5, they are charging $25…really!?!? I knew we had more in the garage so we decided to look for them and in the process we cleaned the garage also. Luckily we found a big tub full of chalks (60+ sticks). We made a sign for our trash collector this morning and we have been doing stain glass stencils all over our drive way. But honestly this is a great way to get the kids outside and even my oldest one who is 14 is enjoying this.
