If you’re a regular reader of Fun-A-Day, you know how much I love process art. There are so many benefits to focusing on the process rather than the product. But, more often than not, the final product ends up being pretty great too!
As spring approaches, I’m sure you’re beginning to think of all the great springtime preschool themes you’ll get to explore with your students. And I think every theme deserves a good art activity!

Spring Art Materials
If you’d like even more spring process art ideas, consider looking at your spring-themed materials. Pull some of those items out and let your students create as they see fit!
Here are a few materials you might consider incorporating into this season’s art activities (I may get commissions for purchases made through links in this post):
Or choose one or two art techniques that you want to teach the children. Perhaps you really want them to explore bubble wrap printing or creating with clay. Combine those techniques with colors or materials that remind you of spring.
Your springy process art project doesn’t have to be overly complicated to be meaningful, I promise! The point is to let the children really dip into their creativity.
