Toddler Art Class with Process Art and Music

I got started down this whole path that led to The Artful Parent by running a toddler art group in my home.

My kids are 7 and 11 now, way beyond toddlerhood, but I’ve been running a weekly group, or more of a toddler art class actually, once again.

I love it.

It’s so much fun to do process-oriented art activities with a group of 2- and 3-year-olds!

Many of the art materials and techniques are new to them and they get so much delight and experience through using them. It’s as if you see them growing and developing right in front of your eyes as they fully explore their bodies and skill sets while exploring the materials and techniques.

It’s a blast.

8 Process Art Activities for Toddlers

So many of our tried and true favorite art activities!

Some of which I hadn’t done with kids in a while, partly because of where my kids are at and partly because I get so excited about trying new and exciting ideas and combinations that I forget how awesome some of the tried and trues are.

Music Circle at Toddler Art Class

Besides the great process art, we had a weekly music circle that the kids loved. It was led by Melissa Garrett, music educator and former preschool teacher, who I am lucky enough to have working with me.

(She’s also written several blog posts about music for kids on The Artful Parent.)
