These drawing ideas for kids are easy and fun especially with your help. It is a great way to express their artistic sides while working on different kinds of media.
Drawing for Kids? Here Are Some Great Ideas for You!
1. Mixed Media Drawing Ideas for Kids
Using box cartons and paint, this mixed media artwork can prove to be a little bit of a tedious one but is worth every minute of your time.
By using other materials and other forms of media, you are opening their eyes to the infinite possibilities of art. You can also create a focus on the fact that you are recycling materials for this project!
2. Mess-Free Finger Painting
A lot of parents are sometimes wary of letting their kids make a mess when creating art, so they sometimes shy away from things like finger painting.
This amazing idea lets your kids play with colors while keeping their little fingers squeaky clean! To do this, you just need a ziplock bag and some paint.
3. Classic Finger Painting
A somewhat opposite approach to the previous drawing idea above, you can never go wrong with this technique!
Finger painting allows your kid to be creative in expressing himself or herself with art. They can paint whatever they want, using whatever colors they wish to use.
4. Stamping Drawing Ideas for Kids
This is another fun way to teach your kids to think outside the box when it comes to drawing and making art. In the example above, you may use a toilet paper core to create a fun flower stamp.
Cut one-inch strips around your toilet paper core, and fold them outwards to create the petals. When you’re done with all your flowers, paint on some stems and draw on your background to set a wonderful garden scene!
5. Connect the Dots!
In a connect-the-dots style of drawing, you’re supposed to start with printing your image onto a piece of paper. Make sure that you put enough space in between the dots so your kids can actually connect them together.
After you’ve placed your dots, then it’s up to your kids to draw lines that connect each dot with each other. When done, you can marvel at the finished image that you guys have created together!
6. Face Paint
When there is nowhere else to draw on, why not on each other’s faces? A fun bonding experience with your kids and a great way to express their artistic side.
7. Hand Painting
If not on each other’s faces, the two of you can draw on each other’s hands. Let them explore the blank canvass that is your skin.
8. Window Art
Give more color to your kid’s room by letting them draw on their windows. The finished work will look best in the morning when the sun shines through the glass and bring the color in their rooms.
9. Chalk Drawing
The best activity for your kids aside from drawing is going outdoors and playing, just like how we would do during our childhood, right? Especially with a pleasing weather, give them a box of sidewalk chalk and let them go crazy on your driveway. Don’t forget to take a photo!
