Parents and teachers can find a large collection of art resources online, ranging from simple coloring pages to expert information on candle making.

Kid's Arts and Crafts

Arts and crafts projects are a great way of keeping children productively preoccupied. On the internet, one can find hundreds of arts and crafts projects for kids. Many TV shows that regularly give young viewers arts and crafts ideas have websites that also provide such information. Most of these arts and crafts ideas teach children how to make new objects from common household items. In Jumpstart, art resources available include expert information on sewing, knitting, painting, scrap booking, candle making, wet felting and a lot more. One can even find graphic art programs and 3D modelling programs that help children master these newer forms of art.

Beautiful Butterfly Prints

Butterflies are some of the most interesting critters on the planet. Known for their unusual life cycle and camouflage abilities, butterflies are sure to catch anybody's eye. Many of these creatures, such as the monarch butterfly, migrate over long distances in certain seasons. They are also important economical pollinators as they fly from flower to flower.

Awesome Octopus

Octopus are some of the most fascinating creatures in the ocean. Not only do they have 8 legs, but they also are the smartest of all invertebrates. Have some fun with your new octopus pal and test your children's understanding of camouflage. See if your children can hide the octopus in areas where its pattern will blend with its surroundings.
