Wanting some simple art ideas for home? Don't have many art resources on hand? Then perhaps try one of these ideas which you can do with very little equipment.
1) Shadow Art
Use toys or people and draw round shadow shapes. You can move your creatures along or see what happens throughout the day as the sun moves. Try doing it with chalk on the pavement too.
2) Colouring In
Draw your own pictures or get someone else to straw them and you colour in. Mindfulness colouring books are also great for relaxing and wellbeing. If you don't have your own books or pages her is a downloadable colouring in book from a decal store in NZ (if you have a printer at home)
3) Paper Weaving
Weaving paper is lots of fun. You can use magazines for this, old books or paper of any kind. Even try using brown paper bags from the supermarket. Fabric or ribbon works well.
4) Nature Weaving
Have you ever tried weaving outside? You can use flax, leaves, twigs or what ever you have around your local environment. You can make a weaving loom from branches and away you go. O if you have a fence with gaps, weave in and out it that (check with your parents first). Another great way to weave is with a large piece of chicken wire if there is any in your garage.
5) Painted Rocks.
Go for a hunt in the garden or down by the stream and find some great rocks to paint. If you don't have paint at home use one of these recipes. Make paint
You can use vivids or felt pens to go over the top to write things on them. Paint test pots are good too if you have them.
6 ) Environmental Art
You don't have to have art equipment at home to do this activity. Head outside and gather up stones, sticks, leaves of different colours and make your own artworks. You can take a photograph to show and remember your work, then you can return it back to nature. Get outside and get inspired!
