Printable crafts are very quick to prepare which makes them a good standby for group activities or those ‘I’m bored’ moments. I have a folder at home in which I keep some preprinted activites ready to pull out at short notice – and they’ve saved the day on many occasions! Keep a variety so that you can cater for any age of child.

The other day, I shared 11 DIY art activity pages to make for kids based on their interests. But sometimes you just don’t want to do anything more than press the print button. So, while the the make-your-own versions are endlessly customizable, printable art activities are quick and easy and more professional looking.

Today, I’m sharing art activity printables that you can offer your child. All except one are free, and the one exception is still super cheap.

My aim was to think beyond coloring pages and find printable art activities that encourage creativity. Or, as in the case of the color and shape printables, provide art skills and knowledge.

I hope you and your children have fun with these!
