Small art is not really for small kids. It just sounded like a good title. However, if they are not too small, kids that are not toooo small do get a kick out of making art that is small. Some people call it tiny art and there are actually quite a few artists that specialize in making really tiny art.
This post is (for the most part) about tiny or small art is for kids.
So this is what I found for you.
I actually first thought of the idea for this post because I had seen this post of tiny art paintings on Pink and Green Mama a while ago and kept it bookmarked. I think little girls especially like small art. It’s cute and girls like cute
I very recently saw the post on artchoo where she does art with index cards. Index cards are small and she has a whole slew of ideas that you can do with kids and index cards. Below is one she did with straws that are slit at the ends.
Another variation on the type of small art done by Pink and Green Mama is art on crafts stick frames by the Tiny Art Room where she incorporates the craft sticks into the art.
This one is obviously not for kids but, its quite adorable and may encourage you to eat sardines. Messy Nessy chic gives you art in sardine cans
For kids that love to collect things how about some art in in bottle caps. They can use their bottle cap collection to color inside and make some really small art. This is not even a direct link to a web page which was unavailable but, a picture on Pinterest, which is enough to teach you how to do it.
This is a really cute idea for kids that like doodling. You make small doodles on small pieces of paper or card and then paste them all together on a larger sheet of paper.
The next one is a short tutorial on making frames for tiny art at gingerbread snowflakes It’s really not an activity for kids to do as the aluminum foil it uses is very sharp, but if any adult wants to make a frame for their child’s small art, its a good start.
The last one is another picture on Pinteres. Just a bunch of black and white square cards, small ones at that. Just give them to your kids with a bunch of other art materials and see what they come up with.
