Kids Art Activities And Ideas

Our kids art activities and ideas are a fantastic way for your children to learn how to draw.

If your kids like the rainforest, animals, dinosaurs, dragons or just messing about with paint and crafts they'll love joining in our art activities.

That's because we've been homeschooling art activities and crafts ever since my kids William and Catherine were old enough to dip their toes in paint and see what fun you can have making footprints!

We've got lots of kids art activities and ideas to choose from to suit all ages.

Join us under the sea with our ocean creatures arts and crafts project.  You'll paint a homeschool sea scene with fingerprint wave crests complete with your own sea shells. 

This art and easy crafts activity starts with making a homeschool rainforest scene, including the largest spider in the world.

We'll show you how to use wool to make dangling liana vines and construct a homeschool pitcher plant - guaranteed to be a hit with your kids if they share William's deathly delight in carnivorous plants.

We show you the tricks to turn homeschooling hand art into fun creations using easy crafts skills like adding googly eyes to aliens.

  • Come and enjoy pebble painting. See if you can spot a dinosaur's eye in a stone!
marbled egg

Marbling inks make delicate patterns on anything from polystyrene cups to paper, but probably one of the most beautiful ways to enjoy them is by marbling eggs. We show you how in our homeschooling Easter Crafts For Kids.
