People all over the world are sharing the most wholesome content on TikTok because of the Mosaic challenge.

If your For You section is filled with attempts of this challenge but can’t understand how to join, you have come to the right place. Let us explore what the challenge is all about and then check out the best attempts for inspiration before joining the challenge.

What does ‘Mosaic’ mean?

A Mosaic is a picture or pattern produced by arranging together small pieces of stone, tile, glass, etc.

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the word as “a surface decoration made by inlaying small pieces of variously colored material to form pictures or patterns”.

What is the challenge all about?

If you look up this trending challenge on TikTok, #mosaicchallenge has more than 66 million views. It also has a bio explaining what the challenge is about – “This is that trend where you say cute things you do because of other people”.

Just like an art mosaic is made of different materials to form a beautiful pattern, this challenge explains that we are all made up of moments, behaviors, and sayings of people that we love.

The thought that we are all amalgamation of little little pieces of everything that we have read, loved, met, and admired is beautiful. That is the reason why everyone is loving the challenge so much.

Users are sharing what they have been taught by their loved ones or how they are made up of all the little things that they have experienced. Check out some of the most viewed attempts at this challenge below.

This challenge shows something beautiful called the Gestalt Theory which states that “the whole is more than the sum of its parts”. It means that we are more than just what we do. We are the people we have been with, the places we have seen, the events we have experienced, the habits, the family we are born into, the friends we have had, etc. These all things come together perfectly and make up something wonderful that is more than all of these things put together.

You can join the challenge with this audioclip and tell us all about what you are made up of.
