These easy doodles for kids really keep them engaged. You can give these simple ideas a go in the classroom or at home.
Doodling helps us to relax our minds and takes us away from screens. Kids love to experiment, play with color, shape and pattern with no fixed outcome in mind.
Mindful coloring books have been popular for some time , and we all know the relaxing benefits of switching off for a while.
However, sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. We don’t always need expensive art materials and coloring books to keep kids creatively occupied.
I grabbed a roll of tape and a ballpoint pen and started playing…….
This experimental process has been quite addictive. If you scroll down this blog post, you’ll see some lots of examples, using rolls of tape, lids and tiles. Any simple-shaped household objects work well.
You’ll need some basic art materials – a ball point pen, lead pencil, oil pastels and water color paints.
I’ve experimented on music paper, old stamp album paper, maps. These can all be found affordably in local charity shops – the older and more yellowing the better!
My kids love it when I stop – stop tidying, stop ‘doing stuff’.
Putting some music on and getting the marker pens or oil pastels out is a great family activity – a rare moment when you can all be round the table, tv off, chatting, doodling – and all doing the same thing together.
