Try scribble art for a relaxing art activity that has beautiful results. A great process art activity for kids of all ages to create together on a small or large scale!

Create Gorgeous & Abstract Scribble Drawings with Watercolors

The kids and I did some scribble drawings the other day, and then filled the spaces with watercolor paints.

It was fun, simple, abstract, and even meditative. Almost like zentangle in painting form. And the results were beautiful!

I came across the idea here, kind of a random Pinterest thing, and gave it a try immediately. Some of you said that you did this activity growing up or with classes, so I guess it’s one of those oldies but goodies that just wasn’t on my radar.

(Note: We did this on regular-sized (8 1/2 x 11 inch) paper the first time. Then we tried a couple large ones on poster board.)

Fill your paper with a big scribble drawing of overlapping and intersecting lines and swirls.

Take your time with this. Do it to music or sit and talk quietly together while you do this simple art activity.

I recommend giving this a try with your kids! Just do a round of scribble drawings, then break out the watercolor paints.  It truly is simple yet the process is soothing and the results are beautiful.
