DIY Inspiration: Balloon Elephant Drawing from tkhlopkova on Instagram. This would make a cute birthday invitation.
DIY Line Design with Shading that Mr. E teaches his 4th graders. I for one have tried this and there are examples on flickr. This is definitely not just for 4th graders! I hate to admit it, but I had to look carefully at some of the flickr designs to understand it (I know, smarter than a 4th grader? May be not!). Check out his tutorial at Art With Mr. E here and more examples on Flickr here. Upper Right Photo: Seuss Worms by scholz at Flickr here, Bottom Left Photo: chaos sampler ATC by scholz here.
I’ve done this since I saw this tutorial and it is so much fun!
DIY Scribble Card: My Art Belongs to You. Really love this idea from The Write Start here.
DIY Optical Illusion Hand Drawing. So easy young kids can do this (and they did!). From The Forest Room.
