When you give a bunch of little girls some markers for marker art, what do they do? Hearts and rainbows of course.

Let’s try to move them on to more exciting art with markers. Below are a number of fun, more abstract ideas you can give girls and boys with all the different kinds of markers out there.

First up is a project from Art projects for kids
