Frame Art Drawing Prompts for Kids

Inspire creativity with simple and unique drawing prompts for kids. Use this printable to create an art gallery of mini artworks.

Updated January 2023

One of the drawing prompts we like to offer is a series of empty frames.

This probably sounds different, but the frames seem to inspire kids’ creativity in a way that a blank piece of paper doesn’t always – even though it’s virtually the same thing!

But for some reason, the simple act of framing the space seems to invite a creative response.

We have been doing this for years in all sizes and on a variety of surfaces. Big and small. On paper and on the chalkboard. Even on Easter eggs!

Frame Art Drawing Prompts for Kids

Several years ago, Jean drew a collection of frames on a sheet of printer paper and made copies. Her kids used that drawing prompt over and over again.

And then the kids of other Artful Parent team members used it. And now your kids can use it!

They can fill the frames with drawings, people, rainbows, and fingerprint animals.

They can draw inside the frames after school, or during a read-aloud before bed. Or anytime!

Since we have had so much fun with this, we thought we’d offer it as a printable for you.

Of course, you can draw your own frame drawing prompt (and we encourage you to!), but if you want a quick and easy printable, then here you go.
