Art Kit

If you haven’t gotten an art kit for your children, you might want to consider doing this. It’s not necessary to spend oodles of money to provide art supplies to children. You can choose from purchasing a pre filled case with art supplies. Or you could gather the supplies yourself to create your own art kit. The supplies you select will depend on the age of your children, however there are some pretty basic art supplies that should be included in any art kit.

  • crayons
  • markers
  • colored pencils
  • safety scissors
  • glue
  • water color paints
  • construction paper
  • drawing paper
  • hand held pencil sharpener

With school starting soon and the tax-free holiday coming up, this is a perfect time to build your art kit. Once you’ve gathered these supplies, you may be surprised how often they get used and enjoyed! If you build it, they will come!

Making Art From Letters

If you have younger learners, why not try having them try this fun art activity? Have them write a large letter. Whatever letter they would like. Perhaps they would like to start with the letter that starts their name. Then have them turn that letter into some sort of animal.This project would be great for teaching letter recognition.

You could have them work on a letter per week. One day they can make animals from the letter. Another day they can make glitter letters, perhaps the next day they could use macaroni to form the letter, or make the letter out of foil, or paint it with finger paints. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination!
