One for Fun – an art activity for bored young children and overwhelmed parents

Here’s an easy art activity to try:
1. On a blank sheet of paper, draw a big doodle with straight and curved lines that cross each other in many places.
2. Colour in the spaces between the lines using paint, crayons or coloured pencils.
Can you make a happy doodle? A sad one? 
Tip: You can play this as a game by drawing with a partner and taking turns, adding lines and colours. You could also assign a colour to each dice roll (e.g., 1 = red, 2= blue, 3=green, 4=yellow, 5=black, 6= purple).

For another take on this activity, check out Happy Hooligans HomemadeDoodle Art!
Area of Development: creativity, problem-solving, self-confidence, emotional learning
Happy creating!
