I want to nurture my child’s creativity but…
It’s hard to find the time
With everything going on, it feels like a huge effort to make the time for art activities and supervise them all.
I struggle picking the best ideas for my kids
There are TOO MANY ideas online; it's totally overwhelming! I spend more time searching Pinterest and Instagram than I do actually creating with my kids.
I'm not very artsy myself
Creativity just isn't my thing, even though I know it's an important part of childhood and so beneficial for my kids.
I don't trust YouTube
Of course video tutorials can be a great resource, but I really don't want to set my kids loose on YouTube. I can't constantly sit over their shoulders to make sure they're keeping on approved content.
Don’t spend another second scrolling endlessly for art ideas – we have that all covered with our curated library of videos. You can finally kiss mom guilt goodbye!
The benefits of art in childhood are virtually endless. Your kids will gain a wide range of skills and increase their independence, creative thinking, problem solving, and self-confidence as they go.
Discover the magic of a more creative home, letting you connect with your family on a whole new level.

We are super happy we are part of the Kids Art Club! I love how easy it is to find something quickly to do with my daughter! - Jaime G
I am thrilled to be a part of a club created for families to enjoy making and learning about art together. I homeschool my children and use many of your resources to help enrich their lives with art and creativity. - Emily W
I love that I don’t need to spend hours on web searching nice art for my kids. - Anna K.
I really like the variety of projects that are adaptable to all ages. - Lisa B.

Kids Art Spot simplifies things for us! - Stacy G.
Just knowing that I always have an idea of something fun to do creates a sense of peace. - Angela M.
My daughter did the art activities on her own or with a friend, with little intervention from me. I was surprised by how useful it was for the kids to watch a video tutorial. - Emma D
The format of the videos - overview, materials, step-by-step instruction - allows my daughter to have more agency in choosing activities then she does when we use books that require an adult to decode the text. Having everything in an app keeps us off the YouTube autoplay death spiral. I also like that activities are sorted by type - painting, collage, cooking, etc so I can choose a type depending on what materials we have on hand or my excitement for mess that day. Also, printable PDFs are key - the puffy slime recipe lives in a plastic sleeve because it’s used so frequently! - Emily M.
We watched the video about making art with washi tape and then the kids made their own pieces of art. It was a great activity, and the video was helpful for the kids to get started independently. I didn’t have to do anything, just gave them the tape and paper. - Jaclyn B
With video tutorials, you can easily engage kids and introduce them to art activities and techniques at home...even if you don't consider yourself creative.

The KIDS ART SPOT is created for preschoolers through tweens. Younger and older children can join in for the art fun, but we had kids aged 3 through 10 in mind when creating many of the activities and videos. That said, there will be some activities that are better suited to older children and some that will appeal more to younger ones.
There will be a materials list for each activity, so you and your children can identify the materials you need ahead of time. Most of the art activities use a few widely available art supplies and household ingredients. You probably have many of the materials already! Some activities, may call for materials that you don’t already have on hand, such as contact paper, shaving cream, or liquid watercolors. In that case you can choose to buy them, use an alternative, or find another activity from the KIDS ART SPOT library. All materials should be easy to find at a local supermarket or craft store.
It depends on the activity, the child, and the family! The kids' art videos are set up so that a school-aged child could do them primarily on his or her own. You could also do some of the activities together with your child the first time (an excellent way to connect through creativity!) and then let them explore the art activity on their own in the future, once they have the knowledge and confidence from trying it once.
I hear you! Art can be messy. But so can childhood and life in general. I help you and your family minimize the art messes as much as possible. In our kids art videos, we have a section called Set Up for Success, after we Gather our Materials and before we start to create. A big part of setting up for success is making sure we protect our work surface and set up properly. I’ve had years of experience doing these activities with my own kids and in art groups, so I can help you maximize the fun while making the clean up as stress-free as possible. Sometimes this means using a tray or art mat, sometimes it means covering the entire table with a waterproof tablecloth (you can pick up a cheap plastic one for a dollar or two and reuse it many times).
The KIDS ART SPOT membership is set up to make it easier for your family to do fun art activities at home and to foster your children’s creativity.
