Art and All Its Benefits

Great Drawing Prompts for Kids

Drawing Prompts for Kids, Kids Art Activities

In my last post, I talked about coloring books. Some adults feel that coloring books offer benefits, such as enhancing fine motor skills; but others feel that they inhibit creativity and confidence in children’s own drawing abilities.

Whether you keep a few coloring books around the house or not, drawing prompts are a great way to encourage children to use their imaginations, practice their drawing skills, and just have fun.

I’ve pulled together a few of my favorite free drawing prompts from some really great blogs. These creative drawing ideas for kids are great for rainy days, long car rides, and lazy summer afternoons.

When you visit Tinker Lab for her wonderful “Design Your Own Character” printable drawing prompts for kids, be sure to read the entire post. It offers some great tips for setting up a “Creative Table Invitation to Create,” and she explains how easy it is to create your own drawing prompts.

She also has a short YouTube video on kids drawing prompts:

Here are a few posts with free printable drawing prompts for kids:

This last one is just one page, but there are other free pages below to download. Also, this theme is in line with my children’s book that will be released this fall. The story largely takes place in the woods, and children are invited to finish the illustrations on each page of the book.

Do your kids enjoy drawing prompts?
