Incorporate art in your homeschool or school classroom with this 30-day drawing challenge for kids. Your kids will love the creative art prompts to build their drawing skills.
Drawing is such a wonderful way for your children to show all their imagination on paper. I love watching my kids draw because they see things in such different ways than we do as parents.
My son is very technical, meaning that he likes to draw what he sees in very fine detail. My daughter, on the other hand, likes to reason through her drawings and likes to play with reality.
For example, if you ask my kids to draw a family portrait, you will find my son drawing drawing everyone’s features and proportions to the best of his abilities. Then you look at my daughter’s drawing, and she would draw herself as the tallest one in the family, then her brother, then daddy, and then mommy as the shortest. She would think her drawing is hilarious and laugh about it all day.
Not only is drawing excellent for kids to express their creativity, it’s also good for your kids’ hand-eye coordination, concentration, and fine motor skills. It allows young kids like toddlers and preschoolers who are not very verbal yet to transfer their emotions and thoughts on paper.
I have for you a fun 30 Day Drawing Challenge that can be used for kids of all ages. Even adults can participate in this challenge, so you can do it alongside your children. This drawing challenge is perfect for your little art lovers and you can easily incorporate it into your homeschool art curriculum.

I suggest giving your children very little guidance when it comes to what to draw and how to draw. Let your kid come up with the answer to the drawing prompts. Then they get to choose their favorite drawing tool to complete their drawing. My kids like to use a pencil to outline everything because you can erase it if needed. Then they will color everything in with coloring pencils.
