Parents’ Day Kids’ Art Activities

craft activity

The fourth Sunday of July is Parents’ Day. How are you going to celebrate? Along with a day of family fun, your kids can create custom artwork to mark the day. Making these keepsakes can spark your child’s imagination, let her get crafty and help her to think about what her parents mean.
Parent Portraits
What does mom look like? What about dad? Hand over the crayons, markers or tempera paints and have your child create a portrait of each parent. There are a few ways to start this project. You can have your child pick a favorite family photo and copy what the parent looks like from the picture. This gets her thinking about the good times she’s had with her parents. Another option is to have her draw the portraits from memory. See how well she knows every intricacy of her patents’ faces with this artsy activity.
Illustrated Poem
Go a step beyond writing a Parents’ Day poem. Your child can draft her own prose and then illustrate it. If your kiddo is too young to write out the words on her own, help her. But, let her draw the pictures herself.
Picture Frame
Frame a family picture with a kid-created piece of art. Your child can glue four popsicle sticks in the shape of a rectangle. Have her paint the sticks or write a special message on them in permanent marker. Tape a photo to the back of the frame and add a piece of cardboard to make it sturdy.
