There are plenty of fun and creative ways to inspire your little ones this summer. It’s time for them to show off their artistic talents and be inspired by real artists. If they fancy themselves the next J.K. Rowling, get them writing their own stories. Here are a few ideas to get stuck into.
Tate Kids has loads of fun interactive activities online. You can make pop art like Andy Warhol, learn about street art, or even make a painting out of chocolate. There are fun projects and games like building a robot or drawing your own fairy tale. You could easily keep them entertained on here for days.
Other famous artists are generously offering free workshops online as well. MoMa New York also has collaborated with the artist Louise Lawler. They are offering a fun interactive program where she recreates tracings for you of famous pieces of artwork, and you can colour them in.
If you really want to sharpen their technical skills, check out these 4 websites where kids can create digital art. You might discover some hidden talents in your family. Once your kids have finished their little masterpieces, use them to make adorable yet affordable presents for all the family.
Artkive is a wonderful tool that enables you to preserve your kids’ artwork. The company then offers printing options, such as mosaic, collages, and large prints. You can have these delivered anywhere you like, including your mother-in-law’s.
The award-winning children’s author and writing coach Sarah Webb has organised a scheme to encourage kids to write about their experiences this year. She is also continuing to hold writing workshops online like, Bright Sparks, Creative Bursts, which are worth checking out. Kids can even have their work published online which is pretty cool.
There are plenty of recommended books for kids during the lockdown as well. For a reward for all their patience, treat them to a new toy, games, or the earrings they’ve always wanted. It’s hard for kids too to feel inspired during the lockdown, so they might need some positive reinforcement from time to time.
Think of fun creative ways to get them interested like by upcycling household items to make cute decorations and ornaments. You can make little plant pots from an empty box or drawer to plant fun summer seeds. You could even make your own garden gnomes out of recycled materials such as a tin foil.
There are plenty of cute ideas online for inspiration. Encourage your kids to make a scrapbook or online diary for example. They could make this out of photos and other things they find around the house. They can then share this with friends and family, even while they’re stuck at home.
