Awesome Art Ideas

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

Art is awesome and fun when you try some of the creative art projects listed below. Your homeschooler will love thinking outside of the box with these unique projects, and you may even feel so inclined to do one of these projects yourself!

1. Fraction Finesse- Children will enjoy cutting out fractions pieces from colored paper, such as circles, half circles and four parts of a square. Assign the children the task of creating a picture with the fraction pieces, and have them create a corresponding background for their creation, too. Animal scenes are fun and easy to create.

2. "Carle" Collage- After reading one of Eric Carle's famous books, like The Very Hungry Caterpillar, offer your children materials to create their own collage scene. Tissue Paper pieces in a variety of colors, gift wrap pieces, craft feathers and felt are all fantastic materials to use for this project. The children can do a collage animal, or any picture of their choice.

3. Pop Art Painting- All children love to paint. Offer a variety of finger paints and challenge your homeschooled children to not only mix colors, but also to create pictures using the colors they have created.

4. Origami Options- Use a simple and colorful book-kit like Origami Fun Kit for Beginners by Dover Fun Kit and have your homeschooler fold up some fun.
Try creating one or two of the Origami art, to get the idea behind this age old craft.

5. Snazzy Snowflakes- Your homeschooler will enjoy making glistening snowflakes, and practicing their cutting skills! Be sure to assist them with folding and cutting the first few, teaching them to leave a crease and folded area so the snowflake stays together. Add glitter on small glue spots if you wish, and string them through a small punched hole. You can even hang them from your ceiling and have an indoor blizzard!

Here are the materials to aid you in the projects listed above:
