You never know when the creative spirit will come, so talk to your family and come up with a plan. It's important to choose a space to make art. Is it the kitchen table, a desk in your bedroom, or a small table in a cozy corner of the house? Next, you will need some materials and a place to put them. Start with something simple, like a shoebox with any kind of paper and pencil, pens or crayons. Be on the lookout for other materials to add to a collection for art making. Don't forget natural items that you can collect while taking a walk, such as sticks, leaves, and stones.
When the artistic mood strikes, you'll be ready! If you're using messier materials, like paint, cover your work space with a cut-up grocery bag or flattened cardboard box.
Your family will enjoy displaying your artwork as much as you will enjoy making it!
