How to Do Summer Art Projects with Your Kids




How to Do Summer Art Projects with Your Kidsthumbnail










Summer is often described as a lazy time, but try telling that to the kids who are home from school looking for something fun to do. Here are some fun art projects that you can do with your children during summer vacation.




Things you'll need:

  • paper plates
  • white glue
  • food coloring
  • goldfish crackers
  • brushes
  • fish gravel
  • tempera paint
  • butcher paper
  • yarn
  • toy cars and trucks




Recognize that you are angry about something. The minute you recognize that you are angry, it will be easier to plan a way to release the anger in an effective and constructive way. Though you might feel like throwing a plate at your partner's head, there are other ways to handle it. Know that a resolution is necessary and plan accordingly. You might want to set a time to talk, or choose to write a letter.

Always start a conversation with "I feel..." When you start a conversation with "I feel..." the other person is forced to listen. As long as they are not feeling attacked, whatever you say with "I feel..." is all about you, and not about them, therefore there is no need to go on the defensive.

No one likes to be told what to do or be reminded of what they did wrong, so it is best to avoid the word, "You," as in "You never listen to me. You always come home late. You always steal the remote control." This puts the person on the defensive immediately, and an argument could ensue. By saying, "I feel sad when you come home late because I enjoy spending time with you," sets the tone in a civilized way.

If it is impossible to communicate directly to the person, writing a letter is very helpful. Sometimes writing the letter without actually delivering it is all it takes to get the anger out. Following the same advice of writing how you feel instead of accusing them, serves the same purpose. Begin with "I feel..." and go from there.

Learning to listen to what your partner has to say is a key component of communication. It is a lot easier to listen to someone about their feelings, rather than have a finger pointed at them. This helps keep anger levels from rising, and arguing to a minimum.

GOLDFISH BOWL ART is easy and fun to do for kids ages 2 and up. Grab a white paper plate and cut off one side so it looks like a bowl. Add some blue food coloring or paint to white glue and let your child paint the entire plate. They can stick on some goldfish crackers and sprinkle colored fish gravel along the bottom. Colorful and fun!


FINGERPAINT ART is something that kids never tire of. It's great in the summer because you can hose them off afterwards. New twists on fingerpaint include chocolate pudding, whipped cream, or shaving cream. Adding food coloring makes more colorful designs.

TOY CAR AND TRUCK ART is a blast for boys and girls. With a roll of butcher paper on the ground or table, your kids have a large surface to work on. Pour some tempera paint onto some paper plates and place a toy car or truck on each color. The kids can roll the toy car in the paint and then "race" the car around the paper creating fabulous designs.
FRUIT LOOP NECKLACES are easy to make and relaxing for kids of all ages. Cutting a string of yarn long enough for a necklace, you can knot the bottom and put some tape around the top creating a needle. String the fruit loops on in any pattern you choose. The kids can wear their necklace or eat it as a snack. Even two year olds love this project. With the leftover yarn and some tempera paint on paper plates, the kids can dip the yarn and make squiggly designs on butcher paper. Makes great wrapping paper, too!







Tips & Warnings

  • Getting messy is half the fun!

  • Be creative with household items and paint.

  • Display the finished projects proudly!

  • Small children should not be left unattended with art supplies.

  • Eating glue is sometimes more interesting than using it.
