A great activity to inspire your little artists - Shape Inspiration drawings - imagination art

My daughter and I sort of have a set evening routine. I come home from work, we eat supper together as a family, we talk about our days & then my little girl and I head to the craft bin. Some nights she wants to craft with me, on others, she wants to craft on her own & some days, she just wants to draw.

Last night, she pulled out some old scraps from a cupcake liner that we had cut up for a craft. She looked at the liner for a minute & then said to me “Mama, this looks like a tutu. Let’s make a girl out of this.” She glued it down on a piece of paper & I took some of the other remnants and made a bow with it and placed it where a head might be. Mai squealed & took the paper & began drawing her girl. She drew in the face, the hair, legs & high-heeled shoes, like mommy has.

She was very excited when she was done.


This simple activity sparked me to want to try more shapes and see what she did with them.

I glued down a triangle & a rectangle. In my mind, when I envisioned this, I pictured her creating a house. Her perception of these shapes was different from my own.


I watched her fascinated, as I realized that she was creating a well.


It is amazing to watch a young mind work.


Next, I gave her two circles.


She drew up a storm on this one.


Mai offered me a very detailed description of what was happening in her drawing. This was a garbage truck & all the garbage guys we going to work.


The last one that we made was just 2 yellow cupcake liners glued diagonal from one another.


Mai saw a baby chick in this one.


Her cute craft & imagination inspired mommy to make a cupcake liner chick of her own.
