There are so many different ways you can create craft and art projects using markers. There are so many different types of markers that are great for crafts for little ones. There are the basic washable markers, Do-A-Dot Markers, and Sharpie Markers!

Some favorite crafts I have found use Sharpie Markers. My kids absolutely love using Sharpie Markers. They know that they are special and to be used with care. Even my 4 year old can use Sharpies and is extra cautious with them. Just make sure that your kids knows that they can only use them on the project at hand and on nothing else!



This is a brand new series that will explore different art projects that can be done using different mediums.

This week we will be having fun with markers!
