Crayola art resources

with one comment

Crayola is perhaps best known for making crayons. But their website has some great resources and ideas to help with your kids creative side. There is ‘fun and games’ where kids can drag and drop elements onto a ‘page’ and then print it out for colouring, as well as other stuff.

However, I want to specifically concentrate on two zones, namely ‘for educators’ and ‘for parents’.

The ‘for eductors’ has lesson plans via a search option to enable structured art working. I particularly found the Art Tips and Techniques section in Resources useful.

And ‘for parents’ there are lists of arts and crafts you can try out with your children; colouring activities to do, wordsearches, cursive writing practise sheets to print off, and lots more.

The site is well worth a visit, either the US site (.com) or other countries, including the UK site (.co.uk).
