These 13 art prompts for kids will inspire their art-making and creativity differently than a blank piece of paper. This list includes drawing prompts, art games, printables, and more.

Updated June 2022

We use drawing prompts and other art prompts a lot and we want to encourage you to give them a try, too, if you don’t already.

Why? Art prompts inspire creativity in a completely different way than a blank piece of paper by presenting a starting point, question, or challenge. And yet, they are remarkably open ended.

Here are some places to find drawing prompts and ways to use them with your kids.

13 Art Prompts for Kids

Note: Some of these are drawing prompts, some are prompts for painting, collage art, or other kinds of art-making. Most are flexible, though. For example, what sounds like a drawing prompt, can be turned into a painting prompt with the addition of paint and a paint brush rather than drawing tools or turned into a collage prompt with the addition of a glue bottle and papers or little collage materials.
