Can you draw a face just using one line?

I'm not sure about your family, but sometimes nighttimes with little kids can be pretty trying.  Everyone is grumpy. Everyone is tired. Emotions tend to run high. Patience is worn thin.

Well, we've had a couple of tough nights these past weeks.  Recently I've found that simple drawing activities can put the kids (and me) in better moods.  Here's one easy art activity that we recently tried and enjoyed.  Can you draw a face using just one line?

"Dreaming of you" 3D Heart Art Project for Valentine's Day

It's January... which means it's time to start sharing Valentine's Day Craft Ideas! Last year I posted an easy way to draw 3D optical illusion hearts.  They were such a hit.  So this year I'm sharing this cute "Dreaming of You" 3D heart drawing.  Like the previous art project, it uses curved and straight lines to create the illusion of a three-dimensional drawing.  But this time I added some fun Sharpie details and a sweet sleepy heart face (because let's be real- who doesn't love a kawaii face?)

Here's how to draw these sleepy three-dimensional heart drawings with your kids.

Fa La La Llama Paper Snowflakes

Are you ready to make the cutest llama winter craft ever?

Ahhhh!  I introduce to you this llama snowflake design!  Ok, ok.  I've gone kinda bonkers with paper snowflake crafts.  But I can't help it... I  just looooove them so much.   And we don't get snow here in southern California.... so I have to make do with these paper flakes.

 Today's paper snowflake design is sooo cute and quite possibly my favorite-ist design of all time.  (Don't tell my other designs.)   (And can we talk about my word choice here?  Favorite-ist?  Well, it's not a real word, but it gets at the heart of things. I just really love cute paper crafts.)

How to Doodle Frisbees

Hi everyone! Quick fun art idea here- I wasn't sure what to call this post originally.  Doodle Frisbees?  Art frisbees?  Mandala frisbees?  "Sharpies-are-so-cool-they-draw-on-everything" frisbees?  Oh well.  Names were never my strong suit.  But I had to pop in and share this craft because I think it'd be a fun one to do for a party on during a playdate.

3D Optical Illusion Heart Drawing Craft

Whoa!  Is this heart popping out of the page, or what?

Have you ever seen those 3D hand drawings?  You know,  the ones that seem to pop out at you?  Well, I was really amazed at how those drawings worked.  But I wanted to give the art project a Valentine's Day craft twist! This past weekend my son and I drew a ton of these 3D hearts.  The results are pretty neat (and the process is extremely addictive!)

How Does Your Brain Work? An activity inspired by Temple Grandin

I recently received a copy of the picture book  The Girl Who Thought In Pictures It's a kids book about one of my heroes- Dr. Temple Grandin.  She's a professor of animal science who also happens to be on the autistic spectrum.  She's funny, brave, persistent, and full of insights.  And I love how she reminds us to value those who see the world in a different way.

Inspired by her story, my son and I tried to explore how our brains work with this simple art activity.

Christmas Word Doodle Art Challenges! (Free Printable included!)

The countdown to Christmas is on!  I love this season and usually share tons of easy Christmas activities and crafts.  But this year it's been tough getting into the Christmas spirit.  With all the wildfires in California, we've been more somber and going slightly stir-crazy staying inside.  (The smoke is pretty bad.)  So today I'm sharing an activity that we recently did.  This fun, no-prep, and creative Christmas activity helped us to pass the time while stuck indoors.
