Children's art projects that involve nature or abstract art help develop motor skills and are easy to complete. Painting activities such as using Q-Tips to create artwork based on pointillism combines learning to appreciate different types of art and having fun with art. Children can draw multiple items from their point of view, such as a cat or plant.

Other easy art projects for children include printmaking projects, collages, watercolor techniques and three-dimensional art projects. For example, children can create a popsicle-stick airplane with simple materials such as glue, popsicle sticks, a clothespin and scissors. Just cut a small stick into the shape of the propeller and a small back wing. Glue a popsicle stick to the top and bottom of the clothespin.

Creating a cherry blossom tree and button tree carry the same concept but use different techniques. Children just need branches, buttons and glue to create the button tree. Arrange the branches in the shape of an actual tree, and glue the buttons to it to represent leaves. Use the same technique for the cherry blossom tree, but hand-paint the tree with black paint brush strokes and glue small pinched pieces of tissue paper to the branch edges.
