A is for Art - A Wandering Vine #AtoZChallenge

Note: This post is part of my Kids’ Activities series for the A to Z Challenge. Read the rest of the posts here.

My 4-year-old son frequently asks to “do some art.” His tools vary, but I always love seeing his creations. My daughter (almost 2 years old) enjoys making her own creations, too. I let them have complete freedom to encourage confidence and creativity. Here are some things we keep on hand for them:

  • Construction paper
  • White paper
  • Paint (watercolor, tempera, finger paint)
  • Markers
  • Crayons
  • Colored pencils
  • Glitter glue
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrushes
  • Q-tips
  • Sponges
  • Glue/glue sticks
  • Tape
  • Googly eyes
  • Feathers
  • Sequins
  • Stickers
  • Stamps and ink pads
  • Coffee filters
  • Popsicle sticks

Do you have anything to add to the list? What do your kids enjoy creating with?

    You can’t start early enough with kids to let them make art and appreciate art. Letting them develop their creativity is priceless! Even though I am not an artsy person, as a primary school teacher, I loved the hours a week, where my students could be creative in “art” class and they shared the results. Inspiring!

      I’m not artsy, either. At all. It’s so cool to watch my kids create and share their creations!

    That’s a great list of supplies!
