5 really easy and cool art projects for kids

Welcome to the first day of 5 days in a row of easy art projects for kids! I’m so excited, because easy art projects are my favorites.

There’s always a place and benefit for longer, more involved projects, but I tend to have no attention span like many children, so I can understand the appeal of easy art projects.

Today we’ve got some really cool marker “drawings”. I posted this beautiful piece of artwork on Facebook a little while back, and asked what you all thought it was made from.

Some thought paint, some thought markers, so I decided to try my hand at using marker. Fen and I folded up a bunch of pieces of paper and experimented with how to hold the markers, whether the paper should be folded or open, etc.

Materials:

  • Permanent markers
  • White printer paper

Fold your paper really any way you want to get good lines and intersections with the creases. We folded ours in half lengthwise twice (so you have 3 creases going lengthwise). Then we did the same thing width-wise, and folded it diagonally for lots of intersection points.

For wherever you want marker dots, fold up the paper into a point, place the point down on a surface, and press the side of the marker tip onto the paper point. Hang out for a while and watch the color bleed until it’s as big as you want it.

Continue with this until all of the dots are made! Easy peasy, right? Easy art projects are lovely.
