15 Favorite New Art Activities for Kids

We do our favorite kids sart activities over and over but we also regularly try new art activities for kids.

So while we might make contact paper suncatchers every season, do double doodle drawings anytime we think about it, and play art games whenever we’re at a restaurant or in a waiting room, there are always so many other art activities for kids that we haven’t tried.

I often come across a new-to-us art activity in a book or on a blog or think of a new way to use or combine art materials and techniques.

And sometimes I assemble the materials for the new art activity and actually take the effort to make it happen.

Here are some of these new and new-to-us art activities for kids from the past year that have become favorites.

Perhaps some of them will become favorites with your family as well…
