Kids Art Project Idea

Teaching Kids Art

If you are teaching kids art, this is one you’ve got to try!  It’s a simple and fun Art Project Idea for the kiddos!  My kids and I always have tons of fun when we bust out he art supplies! Give this fun and easy 3D hand tutorial a try!

Here’s what you need:

  1. Paper (no lines)
  2. Pencil or Pen
  3. Markers, Crayons or colored pencils
  4. Black marker (to outline your final project)
  • Trace your hand.  The kids may need help with this part.
  • Draw lines outside your traced out hand.  These lines do not have to be perfect!  I had to keep reminding my daughter of this because she’s a perfectionist.  (wonder where she got that from! lol…)
  • Connect the lines inside the hand but make these lines curved.  This will help with the 3D look!
  • Once your project is completely traced out and all the lines are complete, color your project!  (Tip:  Don’t use the same color twice in a row.  Offset the colors.  They don’t have to be in a pattern either)
  • Finally, use a black marker to outline your project completely.  Look at step 4 in the photo below:  make sure to add little triangles at the base of each connecting line of your hand.  This will give a shadow and help with the 3D look too!
Note:  The steps in these photos are not completed.   Complete all of your lines before going to the next step.  Color it last!

Fun and Easy Art Project for kids

Once it’s complete, hang it on the refrigerator and step away from your art work to see your masterpiece!  Voila!  You just created a 3D hand!!!  Your kids will be so proud!

Even the neighbor kids got a kick out of this project!!!  The photo above is my project along with my daughters project (age 7).  Here’s the best part,  it takes about an hour to complete depending on how fast they work.  1 hour of pure quality entertainment, PRICELESS!
