Art Journaling for a 4 yr old

I recently introduced a 4 yr old to the joys of Art Journaling.  Tried doing a journal page using only what someone of that age would have access to and, keeping it simple enough that they would understand.  It was harder than I thought it would be.  I had to stop and think at every step which made for a longer time in doing the art journal page.  Also took pics of each process.  Sometimes pics speak louder than words.

  1. My daughter age 5 and my son age 3 play in their own art journal when I'm working in mine. I just give them a few ideas and let them get at it! It works out better than trying to "control" every step. haha

  2. Your children have picked up the basics by watching you work in your art journal. This 4 yr old has had zero exposure to art journaling so wanted to start her with the basics.
