    I think that using stencils to help kids learn art is a wonderful and fun idea. We all know how much kids love to draw.
    I had never thought about it before now but yes, stencil art can be considered a great educational toy. Kids learn how to be artistic and creative as they spend hours producing their masterpiece and they have fun doing it.
    This could be a great toy to keep kids busy on those rainy days.

      Sure is Chris. Ideal toy for rainy days.

    I use stencils in my preschool class and once the kids learn how to use them properly, they really like them. They seem so surprised and proud of what they see when they lift the stencil up! I think they help inspire creativity because they can give kids confidence to try drawing some new things they might not have attempted before.

      That’s the joy of using drawing stencils with kids.  The delight on their faces bring satisfaction to my heart when I see how their faces light up with what they have drawn.  Do you allow them to get more creative and add their own designs to their stencil outlines?

    Children are like sponge. They absorb everything fast and expand their capabilities and talent at an exponential rate, especially more so if their DNA are wired to perform certain task better. Stencil Art is definitely one avenue to explore for children to expand their artistic talent, however some parents just want their kids to grow up as a practical logical person and may not be so inclined to let their child to develop their artistic talent.

    • Carol June 16, 2017 at 4:23 am

      Yeah, kids do learn quickly, that’s why we have to expose them to activities that will be of benefit to them.  Stencil art is just another way to introduce them to drawing.  I am hoping that many parents will encourage their kids to use drawing stencils to help them be creative.

    I used to like stencil art even when I was a kid and even now sometimes I take some time off work in order to draw or create something as it helps me stay focussed and concentrate better on my work.
    I sometimes even include my niece and nephew so that they could to learn the art and understand the value of patience.

    • Carol June 16, 2017 at 4:18 pm

      Great! I am happy to know that you are so involved with drawing even with your niece and nephew. It can be really therapeutic. We don’t have to be artists to create beautiful pieces of art as we can use drawing stencils to enhance our work. I hope you will continue to draw.

    You can not imagine how much I enjoyed your website on stencil art. My 5 year old son is autistic and he does like to draw. In school they have him trace and color pictures all the time. I really never thought about stencils until I saw your website. You have truly inspired me to do super fun projects with my son, who I know will absolutely love the stencil art. I book marked your site so I can show my wife as soon as she gets home. So I have a question. I might be asking too much, but do you have any instruction for stencil art with spray paint?

    • Carol June 16, 2017 at 4:03 pm

      I am glad that you are inspired to rev up some stencil art with your son.  If he loves drawing, he is going to enjoy using them.  Once he draws the outline, he can tweet it with his own designs.  My next post will be on stencil art with spray paint, so keep in touch for ideas.

    I’m a teacher, and a dad and a grandfather, Carol and although I am not an arts or crafts teacher, I think I know children pretty well.
    My assessment is that Stencil Art For Kids can definitely be seen as an educational “toy”. Any idea which gets children to explore and to create in a positive and enjoyable way just has to tick the box.
    Not sure at what age Stencil Art For Kids might be introduced, but I reckon it depends on each individual child hey?
    A super website and I hope it does very well for you and encourages a love for creating amongst many little ones.

    • Carol June 16, 2017 at 3:57 pm

      Thanks Roy, I am hoping that this website will help to enhance the creativity in kids. Kids can start stencil art as soon as they show readiness.  Parents can use them with their toddlers once the interest is there. I know that some preschool teachers use them as there are several benefits for kids.

    I have younger siblings that I think could use this. I never considered using stencil art to grow artistic ability, but looking at it now, it develops a great foundation and requires concentration. I will be getting them some stencils so that I can hopefully help them grow.

    • Carol July 30, 2017 at 12:57 am

      Hi Nick,
      I always recommend stencil art for kids, even if they do freehand drawing very well. It can be an enhancer to their artwork. Even artists use them to speed up their work so it is quite fitting for kids to use them too. Using stencil art can indeed help kids to concentrate on the task. Hope your siblings will enjoy using their stencils when they get them, and hopefully grow in their artistic ability.

    Carol, I don’t remember a time when drawing and colouring wasn’t part of my life. I suppose we were fortunate in growing up in mining camps where all the kids played together. And the mothers (and fathers when not working) made sure we all had things to keep us fit both in mind and body.

    Being in Canada the activities were truly seasonal. In the winter, when not trudging through the snow, all children learned to read, draw, colour, knit, sew and cook. And the adults usually joined in and enjoyed it as much as we did. I do think that is why we all ended up so creative, no matter where we ended up. I am an engineer and often use stencils and colour in my designs so that early knowledge was certainly used.

    You have a very worthwhile site and I like the colourfulness of it.


    • Carol October 12, 2017 at 7:36 pm

      Hi Helen,
      Thanks for visiting. I agree with your reflective thoughts here. When kids do those activities they get a creative boost to their artistic ability. Stencils are great, glad to know that you use them in your designs. My aim is to get kids going with them too.
