Hello, my friends!
I’ve been wanting to write a post for a while now to share some of my favorite kids art blogs to give you some new go-to sites for children’s art ideas. And many of my faves, such as Meri Cherry, Art Bar Blog, and Babble Dabble Do are part of a group called Rockin’ Art Moms—which I’ve now joined!*
Sooo… I decided to write about the group instead, since it would’ve basically been the same post anyway!
So, check these kids art blogs out for new, creative ideas for your family (or classroom, if you’re a teacher).
If you like what you see, subscribe to their feed if you’re a feedreader kind of person, sign up for their newsletter if you like your inspiration delivered to your inbox, or follow them on Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram if that’s where you go for your fresh ideas.

*Okay, so this group first came on my radar earlier this year. After a long-ish recovery from my crash, I poked my head up and started looking around at the world around me. And I saw this awesome group! And I was immediately jealous that A. I didn’t think to start it myself and B. that I wasn’t a part of the group!
So I sat down and had a little talk with my jealous self and told it that yes, I, too, was a rockin’ art mom, and no, I didn’t necessarily need to be a part of a group for that to be true. And that I should celebrate them and what they were doing because we had the same mission—to encourage children’s art and creativity as much as possible. Which is what I’ve been trying to do.
But! I met Jeanette Nyberg from Tiny Rotten Peanuts and Artchoo (who feels like a sassy version of my soul sister) at a conference last weekend and she/they invited me to join them!
I had been too shy and proud to ask to join and didn’t want to crash their party. And apparently they thought I was too big and established.
I’m practically a granny in the blog world, having been doing this for almost 8 years! But I’m like my grandma, who is 87 but says she still feels 16 inside. I just want to play! And hang out with the cool kids!
So… Now that I’ve share all that with you, you can, of course, see right through me. I’m so not cool. :) But I’m okay with that. And I’m excited about joining this group of Rockin’ Art Moms!
