How to Use Grid Art Activities for Learning Fun for Kids
Have you tried grid art activities with your kids? These simple printable activities are so much fun!
My boys loved using our Harry Potter-Inspired Grid Art Activities. While we working on these fun art activities, I realized that others may have a few questions or concerns about how to get the most out of this time with their kids.
My best advice for enjoying grid art activities is to keep it simple. Stress progress, not perfection.
A few of my boys became frustrated when their pictures didn't look quite like what they wanted. I used these opportunities to practice growth mindset skills like persistence, self-acceptance, and affirmations.
After working with our grid art activities, here are my tips and tricks:
- Take a few minutes to study the picture. Notice details, colors, and lines.
- Start with a pencil and eraser.
- Pick a section of the grid with a distinct line or minimum work. Some kids (and adults) find it helpful to start from the center and work out.
- Go slow! This activity does not need to be completed in one sitting.
- It's okay to erase. And erase again. And again. Remember, progress, not perfection 😉
- Step away from your artwork if you begin to feel frustrated. Take cleansing breaths and repeat an affirmation.
- Play relaxing music in the background. Or upbeat tunes. Whatever type of music inspires!
- When you feel ready, begin to add color, if you choose. This step is optional but does add a special touch to your work.
- Ready for a big challenge? Work outside the grid! Take a clean sheet of paper and start to sketch. Fill in with color and enjoy 🙂
