25 Unusual Tools for Creative Art Projects

25 unusual tools for creative art projects

There are so many great tools your kids can use for fantastic art projects. Your kids probably have used paintbrushes, markers, stamps or stencils and we all know those are great, but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up and use materials you wouldn’t ever think of for an art project. This is just a small sampling of the not-so-typical tools to use. I’m sure you can find something fun right in your own home. Be creative and have fun!

This roundup is part of our Summer Learning Series for tools. Each week we have a new theme with fun things to do and make with your child. Check out all the schedule here.
