Zentangle for Kids

My eight year old loves creating Zentangles.

Zentangles are art doodles meant to be done on small pieces of paper for relaxation.

The book one Zentangle a day give basic instructions for creating Zentangles. First a few lines are drawn to contain the doodles. Next the created regions are filled with doodle art. Finally the doodles are shaded to add depth. Contained in the book are 150 different doodles which are introduced a few a day, over the course of six weeks.

After creating a few small zentangles, my eight year old decided to fill an entire piece of paper. Many are done in black in white, but color adds new dimensions to zentangles. A simple internet search reveals zentangle animals, plants and other shapes sure to inspire. Creating zentangles is a fun way to learn some basic art techniques and the book One Zentangle a Day is a good reference for getting started.
