Children are natural creators, that is, they leave the right and wrong out of the process and instead focus on having fun, and immerse themselves totally into what they are doing. In fact, once they get going, it is hard to stop them. Even young, reluctant artists can be converted into crayon-wielding Picassos. One way to do it – I got my kids to play their favorite preschool games and they had to choose something from there to draw and color. These games usually come with bright, colorful graphics that kids love.
If I am not in the mood to clean up after the kids, I just hand them a Zen garden. These are very easy to put together. A tub, sand, and a few rocks are all you need. Kids can use a fork or chopstick to draw designs on the sand, which is their canvas. It is also a very calming activity. I also give kids little objects like leaves and twigs, shells, buttons and others that they can arrange on a blank piece of paper. Voila, we have art that can be dismantled!
