Easy Art Projects for Home Schooling or Distance Learning

While you are working with your kids or students, if you need easy home art projects, please consider some of the lessons offered by Expressive Monkey. I created this website to help art teachers and “art-challenged” teachers (like parents) with art lessons focusing on teaching drawing and giving students lots of creative choices. You can also find lessons on the Teachers Pay Teachers’ website, so that I will provide both links for ExpressiveMonkey.com and my Teachers Pay Teachers’ store.

 

Here is a Collection of Easy Home Art Projects

 
 
 

I created a set of 14 activities that utilize the home environment as part of many of the lessons. For example, collecting texture rubbings, looking outside a window, or tracing found objects from around the house. I condensed each lesson idea to one page of instructions (with pictures) and one page to work on. 

You can find 14 Home Art Lessons on my website or in my TpT Store.

If you’d like to try out 3 of the lessons, you’ll find 3 of the more accessible lessons in a set of

The Collaborative Thank You Banner

 
Say thank you to TEACHERS, First Responders, Healthcare workers, or anyone else that has helped you with this collaborative banner.
A family or other group can make 36 pieces to send to a person or group of people. The banner can be assembled with just a glue stick and hung with tape.
What I love most about this banner because there are spots to write personal messages inside each heart.
 
You can find the Thank You Collaborative Banner on my website or in my TpT Store.

 
 

 

Make a Gratitude Tree

 

If you are feeling a little down in the dumps, one way to help your kids (and yourself) feel better is to create a gratitude tree. Just find an empty wall or door. Create a trunk and then use this resource to make the colorful leaves. Cut the tree trunk from a brown grocery bag, wrapping paper, or whatever you have on hand. If you want to see some examples of Gratitude Trees, take a look at this blog post. The very first example at the top of the post shows how small you could make them!   

Share your Gratitude Tree on social media, and be sure to tag Expressive Monkey!

The Animal Draw, Color & Write Pages

 
 

This drawing set is the first in a new series of lessons. (I will have more like it in the future.) I designed it for younger artists (preschool – 2nd grade). The kids will draw their choice of a face on the animals, color the animal picture, then trace over the animal’s name (preschool – k) or write about the animal (1st – 2nd grade). 

You can find the Animal Draw, Color & Write on my website and in my TpT Store.

 

 

Roll & Draw an Animal!

 

This drawing set is a collection of Roll & Draw pages that would make easy home art projects. You can use Roll & Draw pages over and over with different results each time! You can leave them as pencil drawings or outline with markers and color in with crayons. (Or use whatever art supplies you have on hand.)

 

You can get the Animal Roll & Draw pages on my website or in my TpT Store.
