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!

Have you tried scribble art? It is fun, simple, abstract, and even meditative. Almost like zentangle art in painting form.
We like to set this art invitation up when we have family visiting. It is a great way for cousins to connect over art, no matter what age. We’ve done it with kids as young as 3 and as old as 11, and everything in between!
Scribble Art for Kids
(Note: We did this on regular-sized (9 x 12 inch) paper the first time. Then we tried a couple of larger ones on poster board.)
Fill your paper with a big scribble drawing of overlapping and intersecting lines and swirls.
Paint the sections of your scribble drawing with watercolor paint. So easy!
Take your time with this. You can do it to music or sit and talk together while you do this simple art activity. It truly is simple, yet the process is soothing, and the results are beautiful.
You can also do scribble drawings with markers, crayons, or just about any art materials.
