Activities to Improve Art:
- Let the children use paper & markers to draw anything they wish. Ask them to create their magical creature and family drawing, use all the rainbow colors in one picture, etc.
- Hand the kids some chalk & let them at the sidewalk or driveway! To “spice up” this exercise, have the children see what happens when they draw with wet chalk.
- Use random things you have on-hand to create art – paper clips, cotton balls, leftover plastic Easter eggs, Post-It Notes, old CDs, etc.
- Take spare kitchen utensils, paint, & paper. Let the children paint using potato mashers, spatulas, whisks, & anything else in the kitchen. If you have washable ink, that will work well, too.
