Using materials found in every art room, students will draw criss cross lines to create shapes for doodles to live! Then, by following a few basic prompts, kids can work freely to make unique works of art.

This lesson is a short excerpt of a long-form lesson plan which can be found in the Scribbles & Doodles Bundle, inside The KinderArt Club.

This lesson is from the NEW book Awesome Architecture Activities for Kids (written by the KinderArt Crew!) which features 25 exciting STEAM projects to design and build.

Andrea and Jantje

I’m Andrea, that’s me on the left! When my mother Jantje (to my right) and I created KinderArt in 1997, we were leading children’s workshops at a local art gallery. One day we decided to look online see if there were any resources for art teachers and found that there were very few (hello Ken Rohrer and The Incredible Art Department!). Not long before, we had made the move into “cyberspace” by placing our Art Studio business online. So, along with that, we created what was at that time a modest resource for art teachers, with about 20 art lessons…


You are currently on the site which features lots of free art activity ideas for kids (I hope you are enjoying them!) HOWEVER, if you are looking for more detailed art lesson plans, drawing lessons, printables, sketchbook starters (and more) provided monthly, you will LOVE The KinderArt Club – a membership portal designed for parents, homeschoolers, classroom art teachers and studio instructors.

Inside the club you will find hundreds of printable PDF art lessons designed to work in small or large group settings, with a range of ages (from 5 to 12 years). Get creative teaching kids at home, instructing students in a classroom, leading workshops in a studio, or sharing online, as you explore artists, art periods, science, nature, history, cultures and themes, with creativity and flexibility in mind.
