Even if you struggle to fit art into your everyday homeschool routine, you may want to carve out special times for it during holiday times. Not only will your family have fun with seasonal projects, but hanging the completed masterpieces around your home will give your living space a festive air.
Of course, it doesn't hurt if the projects are simple. The following art ideas require minimal supplies and little set-up or clean-up.
Unlike many craft projects, these art suggestions focus on the process of creating, rather than on finished results. Encourage your children to express themselves creatively as they decide where or how to add color or other elements to their design. Kids will enjoy experimenting with the materials and using them in creative ways. It's okay to give directions or suggestions, but don't let your idea of how the finished project should look overrule your child's creative license.
As your family prepares for Easter, festive art projects can cultivate a holiday spirit in your home. Below are three suggestions of fun and creative, yet simple, art ideas for kids of all ages (and parents, too).
