With School Holidays around the corner it never hurts to have a few extra activities up your sleeve to ready to fill an afternoon. The school holidays provide a special window of opportunity for kids to get creative! It’s when I see lots of kids perfectly happy to take their time drawing, painting and making art that they wouldn’t normally have the time or energy to finish. Here is a list of my 8 FREE & FUN art projects for your kids to complete these holidays. There is a bit of everything for kids of all ages from finger painting, drawing, collage, painting and process art. To make the most of these art projects I always like to prep my materials ahead of time and have them set them up ready to go when my kids wake up or during that afternoon-lull.

I can assure you that finger-painting is NOT just for toddlers. Creative kids (and me too!) love the sensory texture of paint on their fingers tips. This lesson will encourage your child to learn about nature and the environment, while promoting aesthetic awareness and building important fine motor skills.
