Head over to our CRAFT BLOG to see my full book review and examples of projects we created inspired by Art Starts >>>

Get inspired with hands-on creative art prompts featuring simple materials you can find at home.

Art Starts by Tinkerlab encourages children to focus on the process and experience of art instead of the outcome. Open-ended art prompts are essential for raising learners who are comfortable with the unknown and eager to tackle it with creative thinking and problem-solving skills.

Offering ideas on how to create an art space and foster self-directed play along with a wide range of prompts—from drawing, painting, and paper cutting to sculpting with clay and other three-dimensional art—these 52 projects inspire creative art play using basic supplies and everyday household materials to get kids engaged in their own explorations.

As a parent, I love that all the project ideas presented in the book are simple and easy to set up and only require basic art supplies, no fancy materials required!


  • 52 simple art project ideas.
  • 176 pages of beautiful, engaging images.
  • The projects are categorized into chapters about different materials so you can easily find project ideas relating to the materials you have available.
  • Suitable for ages 3-8 yrs


The book is soft back with 176 pages and measures 17 x 23cm.
