Drawing allows children to:

  • EXPRESS themselves
  • PROCESS their world
  • EXPERIMENT with ideas and techniques
  • MAKE ART anywhere
  • INTERACT with others
  • & develop FINE MOTOR SKILLS

Here are over 75 creative drawing ideas for kids! These ideas, activities, and posts that include drawing games, creative drawing prompts, and experimenting with unique drawing surfaces. In addition, there is information for parents about drawing supplies, how to talk to kids about art, and drawing at different ages.
