Looking for ideas on how to keep your kids entertained and engaged while getting creative?
We’ve put together these easy drawing tutorials so you and your kids can learn how to draw and make some art together!
Drawing is a great way for kids to practice their fine motor skills, and exercise their imaginations, but we know sometimes a blank page can be scary, even for little ones! We have put together some drawing ideas for every child so they can have fun being creative and colourful. From animal lovers to beach babies to magical dreamers, our tutorials will help your kids show off their creativity and make some lovely art at home with you.
As new technology is becoming more accessible for kids, one of the most important things we can teach them is how to cultivate their imagination and get creative! Luckily, it’s as simple as grabbing a pencil, some paper a selection of coloured pencils, and following along with our ‘How to Draw’ tutorials. They are all suitable for children and easy to follow along with to make some cute drawings!
If you’re feeling adventurous with your kids’ art at home, you can also try using watercolours or crayons to brighten up their artwork, which can help turn some simple drawing ideas for kids into gorgeous fridge-worthy art. It’s possible you’ll also want an eraser, because we don’t always get things right on our first try! If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even take your drawings to the sidewalk with some chalk drawing!
