Easy Art Projects for Kids • One-Page Lessons • Home Art Lessons




Looking for fun and easy art projects for kids at home during distance learning or homeschooling? This set of 14 art lessons specially designed for home learning, is perfect for school closures like snow days and calamity days.

With our take-home art lessons, you’ll discover a collection of 14 easy-to-follow lessons that students can read and enjoy independently. Each instruction page is thoughtfully condensed to just one page, ensuring simplicity and clarity for young artists. Plus, each lesson comes with a dedicated page for students to work on.

These versatile lessons aren’t just limited to distance learning situations; they’re also fantastic for homeschool activities and ideal boredom busters during school breaks. What’s even more exciting is that many of these projects embrace the home environment, using everyday objects, textures, and even people as sources of inspiration. Sparking creativity and imagination is at the core of these art projects, encouraging students to put their own unique spin on each idea.

Parents, get ready to have fun creating art alongside your children. This art packet is not only educational but also a delightful way to bond and have fun as a family.

What happy customers are saying:


I actually used these in class with my art students as time fillers when they finished a project before other students, and also for sub plans. They are fun and engaging short activities.

~ Cassandra I.


I have used several of these lessons as part of our homeschool curriculum and they have been fantastic. My child enjoys art and finds these lessons fun and engaging. I enjoy that they are easy to follow and don’t require a ton of extra resources that I may not have lying around.

~ Sarah W.


This packet was a life-saver! I used it for my at-home students and got rave reviews from parents, and I used it for “art on a cart” since I didn’t have full use of materials and space in my classroom.

~ CeeMarie in the Art Tree
