Do you or your kids ooze creative thinking, but everyone is in a creative rut? You enjoy doodling, but you’re a little apprehensive about drawing. Maybe you don’t know where to start?

Enter my awesome friend Jeanette Nyberg, from Craftwhack. She has written, Tangle Art & Drawing Games For Kids. I received a copy of this book, and every page brought a huge smile to my face. Jeanette has a keen way of making art fun, silly, and applicable to your everyday life.

Art Game With Kids- Kaleidoscope Circles

Most of my little students range from ages 4-7 years old. I’m always looking for fun projects that cater to various age levels so that I don’t need to do too much tweaking. 

This Kaleidoscope Circles art game, teaches kids to create a colorful artwork, like a kaleidoscope, while learning to draw overlapping shapes.
