Easter is just around the corner and it’s time to get creative with your drawing ideas. In this post, I compiled for you some creative Easter drawing ideas you can use with your kids during this holiday season. The purpose is to engage kids in creative learning experiences and let them explore their own artistic expression.
These Easter drawing activities can either be done the traditional way, which is my favourite option, using pen and paper or you can do them digitally with a tablet or an online digital canvas. Either way, make sure to provide kids with clear instructions on the requirements for each activity and give them the freedom to explore their own creativity.
AI Drawing Generators
AI drawing generators are AI-powered tools that generate beautiful drawings based on text (or image) prompts. You can simply ask the AI tool what you want to draw and with a single click you can generate your drawing. However, given that the purpose of Easter drawing activities is to engage kids in hands-on creative activities, AI drawing generators won’t really serve the purpose.
But here is an interesting drawing activity you can use with kids which involves AI drawing tools.
Instead of using AI art generator to create generate their Easter-themed drawings, they can draw them the traditional way and when they are done, they can then use AI art generators to generate drawings similar to what they have drawn. They can compare their drawings with those produced by AI, discuss any differences and have fun while doing so.
To be able to generate similar images using AI kids will have to come up with accurate and detailed prompts. This will help them practice prompting skill allowing them to learn how to craft prompts that render better results.
