Ballerina – Simple Art For Kids

Save for later or share with your friend

Often young girls fall in love with ballet and ballerinas.  This fascination is usually something parents happily encourage since it promotes a healthy lifestyle, physical activity, great for little girl’s posture, teaches them to move gracefully, encourages children to listen to classical music and create wonderful friendships. There are plenty of amazing books written for children who take delight in this graceful form of dance.

We came across a couple of them. It inspired our ballet simple art project for children I am going to talk about in this post. These books were great for expanding child’s vocabulary and providing with interesting and important knowledge about ballet young children are able to grasp. They are informative and very well written.

We found them in a local store with pre-loved books. I couldn’t find them anywhere else, but there are wonderful books that’s been published more recently which can help young ballerinas satisfy their curiosity and learn more about ballet:

My First Ballet Book by Kate Castle

Ballerina: A Step-by-Step Guide to Ballet by Jane Hackett

The Ballet Book by Darcey Bussell.

Our simple art activity incorporated a couple of art techniques that were fun for little fingers to experiment with paint and colour.

Here is what we’ve done.

Prepared Tools:

  • Paper towel
  • Two colours of paint on a palette
  • Ballerina silhouette printed and cut
  • Pencil with rubber

Here is what I invited Blossom to do:

  • Scrunch up a paper towel and dip it into a paint
  • Leave prints and cover the whole paper

It’s entertaining for young kids to learn different techniques they can experiment with, and express their creativity. We also enjoy connecting art we make with our learning experience and books we read. Simple art activities prepare young children for writing and develop fine motor skills, children learn to extend their time of concentration while working on a project and enjoy the process as much as they do the result.
