There is nothing better for young artists than drawing aliens. Because no one has ever seen an alien (except me), there is never a bad drawing of an alien. Kids in my class love these quick and easy how to draw an alien tutorials. They love the creativity of drawing creatures that have never been seen. These are a great way for the classroom teacher to use art to get students writing. There are a lot of great drawing ideas in this tutorial.
Drawing Ideas for Kids gives kids little drawing tips and ideas to unlock their creativity. These drawing ideas for kids have been tested in the classroom over a 14 year period.
These drawing ideas for kids work to help kids learn to read and write. Although, I teach in the regular classroom. I am really seeing the value of using art to get kids motivated to read and write at an early age. I have a kindergartner, a 3 year old and a 2 year old. I don't push drawing on them, but I draw with them and here are some of the results. These are some of my oldest son's drawing ideas.
Read to your kids every day, but also try to draw with them. Don't worry about your skill level. Just draw for fun. Your kids will love it!
