Keep Little Artists Entertained this Half Term

10 June 2023

You're probably looking for ways to keep the children entertained with half term quickly approaching. While you might choose to go on holiday, staying closer to home can be just as fun. So if you're looking for art-themed activities for this half term, look no further. We've compiled a list of fun and engaging activities to keep your little artists entertained.

Visit a local gallery

A visit to a local art gallery is an excellent way for children to spend a half-term break. Not only will they get to see some fantastic artwork, but they'll also learn about different artists and styles. They might even be inspired to create their own art when they get home! And who knows, maybe your child will discover a new favourite artist. So, a trip to the art gallery is worth considering if you're looking for a fun and educational half-term activity.

Do some outdoor painting

Painting is a fun and easy way to get creative, and there's no better place to do it than outdoors. The natural world is full of colours and textures to explore, and kids can use their imagination to bring these elements to life on paper or canvas. Painting outdoors provides an opportunity to connect with nature, and children may find inspiration in the beauty of their surroundings. So if your child is interested in art, encourage them to grab some paints and head outside for a fun and creative half-term activity.

Go to an art class

Art classes provide a fantastic opportunity for children to explore their creativity and learn new skills. They will also see their work come to life as they watch it progress from a blank canvas to a finished masterpiece. But, most importantly, art classes are a fun and enjoyable way for children to spend their half-term break. They provide a chance to socialise with other children who share similar interests, and they offer an opportunity to discover hidden talents.

Have a themed art day

A themed art day is an excellent activity for budding artists. It allows them to explore their creativity and have fun with art supplies. Choose a theme, such as animals or architecture, and spend the day doing related art activities. Themed art days can be based on anything, from favourite characters to seasonal celebrations. And there are endless possibilities for activities, from painting and drawing to sculpture and collage. So a themed art day will be a hit whether your child is a budding Picasso or just getting started with art.

Visit an art fair

Many towns and cities will have art fairs during the half-term break. Art fairs provide an excellent opportunity for children interested in art to explore various styles and mediums. Many fairs feature traditional and contemporary works, allowing children to see how art has evolved over time. In addition, art fairs often include hands-on activities, such as pottery-making or painting classes. This can be a great way for children to get creative and try new techniques. There can even be opportunities for kids to meet local artists and ask them questions about their work.

These are just a few ideas for art activities this half term. So whether your child is an artist in the making or just getting started with art, there are plenty of options to keep them entertained.
