DealDash Kids: Choosing Your Next Art Project


Most kids love doing arts and crafts projects. Here are some tips from DealDash to choosing your next art project with your kids.

Selecting a new art project to do with your kids can be a bit overwhelming. With so many different things to do online and off, it can be difficult to select the right art supplies. Here are some things to think about when you are looking for a new art project to do with your kids, from DealDash.

What Are Your Kids Interested in?

Think about things that your kids like. Then try to use that information to plan a project or two in order to have some fun being creative with your kids. Planning ahead of time when you want to shop online or offline for art project supplies.

For example, if your daughter loves horses and needs a new painting in her room it would make sense to try your hand at that. Perhaps your son loves dinosaurs. Maybe you could paint a ceramic dinosaur bank together. There are so many options, just try to figure out what your child is interested in.

Just Ask!

Simply ask your kids what they would like to do for an art project. Who knows, you might have all the supplies that you need right in your house. Your children will be very excited to be asked for their input. Making your kids excited about crafting is a great benefit of doing art with your kids. 

What’s Your Budget?

Keep in mind your budget. You need to not simply go shopping and by art supplies. You need to pay attention to sales so you can get the very best deals on the supplies that you need. That way you can pick up your kids’ favorite supplies when they go on sale. Be sure to google “coupon” and the name of the craft store you shop at before you go to get your supplies. There are almost always coupons floating around each week.

Re-Use an Old Idea

If you have simply run out of new ideas put a twist on an old one. If you can make something your kids have done before appear exciting again it would be a great way to keep them interested in doing crafts. 

For example, if you and your child have previously drawn a comic book together, why not go back and color it? Or maybe you and your child built a birdhouse. Now is the time to give it a new paint job!
