Easy Art Projects for Kids

©2007 Publications International, Ltd.

Easy art projects for kids help children begin to express creativity at an early age. There are so many exciting and interesting things to create, and all you need are some simple art supplies and objects you already have around the house!

As kids try more projects, they'll learn how to use various tools while experimenting with different ideas. Remember, creativity doesn't always mean making something new, it's learning how to combine one idea with another. As your little artists bloom, you'll see them come up with their own additions to make these projects unique.
