100 kids art projects

Exploring art is such an important part childhood (and beyond!) With just a simple set of materials you are giving your child the opportunity to explore

the math of shapes, colour mixing, geometry and more;

storytelling and language development as they draw characters, create a scene and talk about their art;

sensory experiences as they swirl paint, smear glue and tear paper;

science discovery as they explore the properties of glue, paint and card;

and the uplifting, joyful discovery of their own voice and vision, and the confidence to express themselves.

In this archive of kids art projects you’ll find process art, seasonal crafts, and ideas for exploring new materials. The art projects are indexed by topic, material, technique and theme, to help you find ideas that are just right for your child. Click through, take a look at the all the photos and pick a few to try. Read more »
