Conyers Child Care: Fun-filled art activities to try at home with your preschooler

Posted on | Elisa Frey


There is nothing that makes a preschooler happier than creating unique pieces of art and proudly showing them off to family members. Art activities need not be too complicated or messy. In this piece we will take a closer look at a few great art activities you can try at home with your child.

Draw portraits on paper plates

This is a great activity that can be enjoyed using a simple array of items from around the house, such as paper plates, string, crayons, and paint. Ask your child to draw a face on a paper plate. It could be your face, or that of a favorite literary character. You can have extra fun with this project by using colored string or pipe cleaners for hair.

Create a house out of old boxes

This project may take a couple of days to complete, but is incredibly fun nonetheless. Gather a few old boxes, and choose the largest of these to form the shell of the house. Help your preschooler cut out windows and a door. Use paint to decorate the exterior and utilize pieces of the other boxes, in order to create a roof. Allow your child to use their creativity in the decorating, and let their imaginations take flight when playing in the new structure. It could be a house, a spaceship, a school, a hospital, the White House...the possibilities are endless!

Paint with sponges

Sponges are a great way to break the monotony of regular painting. Allow your child to explore new techniques painting with a sponge. Your child will be able to create elaborate new patterns and have fun mixing colors together.
