Where to start….
Although I’m an artist, or maybe because I’m an artist, I totally get the “But, I don’t know what to draw” complaint. I either have 100 ideas all scrambling to get out of my head at once or my mind is literally a blank chasm with my only thoughts being of sugary snacks and coffee.
You can’t will inspiration to come at a predetermined time. (Trust me. I’ve tried.)
Some stigma used to be attached to giving kids “coloring sheets.” Coloring pages teach kids to follow the rules, to color within someone else’s lines.
I don’t buy it. These sketchbook prompts aren’t meant to replace making their own, inspired art.
What they are meant to do is help a kid find something creative to do with their hands and mind for the last ten minutes of class when they are done with their other work.
They are meant to give a stress free way to move thoughts and ideas from their head to a paper.
If you have a kid that loves to “doodle” check out this Zentagle -ish Landscape project to keep them busy for hours!
It’s fall, after all…
You guys, it’s fall! After a long Indian summer it finally feels like fall. The evening sun shining through leaves in our backyard is truly jaw dropping.
It’s chilly in the morning and in the evenings, in a good way. We’re planning Thanksgiving, and Halloween activities; which means time with family and friends. What could be better? And when I secretly think that staying home alone could be better (Ha.) the excitement of my kids reminds me how special these little mini celebrations really are.
Kids are always able to pick out the important stuff, aren’t they?
No matter what holidays your kiddos celebrate these fall sketchbook printables will be appropriate. They celebrate the season, rather than a specific holiday.
