Location: indoor or outdoor
Materials: large paper, markers, crayons, colored pencils, etc.
Bring a social element to your art offering by inviting your kids to work on a large group drawing together. Tape a large piece of paper to the floor or the wall and put out a variety of art materials to explore.
- Bring the drawing out multiple days in a row to allow kids to add to it
- Mix up the materials you set out, maybe one day it's crayons, then the next is markers, then the next day it's stickers, then finally put out the dot paints.
- Look at the drawing as a group, like you might a famous work of art-- what do your kids notice?
- Use a sharpie to trace some different shapes onto the page to inspire kids to interact with the paper differently. A circle could turn into a face, or a triangle could be made into a house-- the possibilities are really open.
