Top ten Pinterest boards for kids’ art and craft

1. My first recommendation is NurtureStore‘s own Kids Art board. It has a great selection of ideas from around the web with a focus on projects that encourage children to really explore their creativity and to enjoy the process of art.

2. Families don’t need to spend lots of money on expensive art materials – just follow the Glorious Junk! board for all sorts of ideas for wonderful things you can make from your own recycled household waste.

3. The Kids Art Explorers is a new board that’s using Pinterest in a different way. It’s an online art gallery showcasing the work children are producing as part of the Kids Art Explorers project. This project give kids an idea for a new art material or technique to use each month, inviting them to try something different and see how they can use it. Follow the board and why not join in with the Kids Art Explorers project too?

4. The Inspired by Nature board founded by Rashmie from Mommy Labs is a collaborative board which brings together ideas for art using natural materials. It’s the perfect place to get ideas for taking your art outside.

5. Debbie from Rainbows Within Reach runs the collaborative Children’s Art board. I mentioned this on in my top ten pinterest boards for parents but it is such a great board I had to include it in this list too. Go take a look and you’ll see why I love it.

6. Follow Tinkerlab‘s Art Recipes board and you’ll have all the info you need anytime you want to make your own crayons, paint, flubber and more.

7. The Kid Blogger Network Activities and Crafts board is especially good for finding seasonal art and craft projects. Founded by Laura from Play Dr Mom it brings together ideas from over 80 blogs in the network.

8. I like the Art Ideas For Kids board that Jen from paint cut paste curates because it has such a fun range of ideas for young artists.

9. And what are you going to do with all this wonderful art your kids are going to be making with all this inspiration? The Kids Art Displays board has all sorts of ideas for using and displaying your kids creations.

    I can’t say enough good things about Growing a Jeweled Rose. What a great blogger to follow. She gives a lot of good ideas for sensory art experiences for preschoolers.
