creative art activities for young children- focusing on exploring the art process

hmm- I know a few preschoolers who could probably do something like this and would love it! This beautiful project was made in a fifth grade art class. Teacher Joanna Davis of We Heart Art explains how it was done using tin foil, yarn, glue and Sharpies.

Creating tape resist art on foil - What a fun texture to paint on, and I just love the results.

Paint that grows. Mix 1 cup flour, 3 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt, and enough water to make consistency of pancake batter. Divide into 4 parts and put in snack size Ziploc baggies along with food coloring. Squish it around to mix up the colors. Rubber band like icing bag and snip tiny hole. Squeeze to paint and then pop paper in microwave for 30-45 seconds and watch the paint puff up and grow.

Momma's Fun World: Make your own colored glue with kool-aid - ah, why didn't I think of that! So much more fun than food coloring or paint! A must try!

Make liquid watercolour paints out of old dried out felt tips-put an elastic band round 5 or 6 dried out water-based markers of a similar colour. Pour water into glass jars below the screw top area. Put the colour tips of the markers into the water & leave for at least 8 hours (",)

Make your own Kool-aid watercolors for art and sensory exploration!
