If you’ve been around for a while, you already know I’m a fan of Big Art. It seems to make art projects – even with toddlers and boys – manageable.
For those of you that are new to this term that I’ve made up:
Big Art is fun art projects for kids that invites total involvement in the process. I believe that the early years it’s all about the process, and not the product.
- It’s usually big in size.
- It gets you moving. Building those gross motor skills that are so important in the early years!

Top Tips to Make Big Art Fun for Kids
Since these projects are so big in scale and time commitment
- Make art bigger
- Create art with movement
- Use big objects to make the art
Make your art bigger by going outside, unrolling a big roll of paper, or grabbing a giant box. You’re looking to take up space – and lots of it!
Run, jump, roll, throw – just move! Getting into the physical action make bigger sized art projects more fun and engaging.
Adding movement to art creation builds those gross motor skills and major muscle groups. Plus, your kids will burn off tons of energy!
Get creative with your art tools, too. Unexpected objects, like giant bouncy balls or toy trucks, can make really interesting art!
