Halloween is next month and we have already started planning our costumes. My daughter told me ages ago that she wanted to be a bat this year for Halloween. That hasn’t changed and it is all that she has been talking about. Bats, bats, bats have been on the mind. While brainstorming ideas for making her costume, I couldn’t help but make some bat crafts too. I am kind of in love with this bobble head bat. He is so cute and silly and it is fun to make him bobble and fly.

Glossy Sugar Painting Sunflower

We love experimenting with different painting techniques. Recently, we played around with salt painting. The process was so cool and generated a lot of ooohs and ahhhs from my daughter. She loved the way the paint spread out quickly as it touched the salt. Today, we switched the salt for sugar. The technique and results were equally cool. The color also spread out in interesting patterns when it touched the sugar and it left a gorgeous glossy finish. We used this method to create a pretty sunflower painting for fall. Here’s how.Glossy sugar painting sunflower for the fall - a beautiful painting technique. Kid's arts and crafts projects

My daughter’s favorite series of chapter books is the Captain Underpants series. In this series of books, there is a mini section called the Flip-o-rama. It is a mini flip book within the existing story. My daughter loves this and has made several flip books of her own over the last few months. We have played around with them quite a bit and they have become a little bit of an obsession in our house. They are just so much fun to make. With fall on the way, we had a little fun with some fall themed flip books and we just had to share them with you. We have included printable tree templates to help get you going. These would be great to use for all seasons.Fall flip book with printable template. Design them for the seasons and make a flip book for every season. Arts and crafts for kids

30 Artist Inspired Art Projects For Kids

Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

It brings me so much joy knowing that my daughter loves art as much as I do. My five-year old spends the vast majority of her free time drawing, painting or crafting. It is wonderful to be able to share this with her.

 I introduced her to the great artists early on and her curiosity and love for them has grown and grown. She wants to read books about them (We included a list of some of our favorite kid’s book about famous artists at the bottom of the post.) and look at pictures of their different artwork. She wants to know everything about them and loves trying to recreate their work and experiment with each artist’s techniques. It is amazing. Sufficed to say, artist inspired art projects have quickly become a favorite in our home. Here is a great collection of some of our favorite artist inspired projects for kids.
