Is there anything sweeter than children’s artwork? Is there anything cuter than a mini canvas painting and easel? Put the two together and you get the most adorable piece of art decor ever! These mini canvas ideas for kids would be perfect for an art party, or packaged together as a gift! My 7 year old daughter and I made these two simple mini canvas paintings on a rainy afternoon day. We had a great and relaxing time painting and chatting. She enjoyed spending time with me and I loved seeing her creativity shine. Read on to learn how to create a DIY mini canvas painting for a child in your life!
This is a seriously simple project that takes minutes to prep. Not an artsy adult? That’s OK! The drawings can be very simple and will look super sweet once the child gets their hands on them – promise! Let’s get started!
Step one. Decide on your mini canvas ideas. For younger children, use a Sharpie Marker to draw a simple image onto the mini canvas. Don’t have the greatest drawing skills? That’s OK! Do an internet search for simple cartoon drawings or something similar to get some inspiration! Older children could easily draw their own picture.
If you’re looking for a crafty gift idea for kids, these DIY mini canvas ideas is the perfect solution! Package several pre-drawn mini canvases with a mini easel and water color paints. It makes an inexpensive and fun gift.
