52 Creative Drawing Prompts for Kids

Creative drawing prompts are amazing to spark creativity in the little minds around us. I love how they provide just a little bit of guidance and leave plenty of room for imagination – all at once! I also love that there’s no WRONG way.

Some kids struggle with a blank page and they need just a little nudge to kickstart their creativity. This is why I love prompts so much. And if you’re here, you’re searching for them too!

If you’re a teacher by chance – this is a great way to start an art class or for morning work to kick off your day! It’s a great conversation starter as well.
