{Guest Post} Six Easy Art Activities for Kids

I’m away on holidays and have invited some of my blogging buddies to share their creativity Octavia and Vicky readers. Our guest today is Kate from Picklebums. Please make her feel welcome!


I have four kids – twin girls aged almost 9, and two boys aged five and two. They all love doing arty activities. I usually love doing arty activities, except sometimes when the thought of setting up, supervising and packing up makes me want to crawl back into bed and never come out!

Luckily I have a long list of easy art activities. These are activities that don’t require much set up, or much cleaning up and once I get them started, my older kids can manage these activities pretty much on their own.

Here is a few of our favourite easy art activities…

Oil Pastels + Oil = Paint

Printable Shape Drawing Prompts

Keep It Simple Collage

Draw Big!

Say Yes to Painting – Water Paints
