Process art activities are one of our favorite ways to create! Taking part in open-ended art projects allows children to express themselves creatively, participate in sensory exploration, and help build confidence and self-esteem that will help them with learning in all areas.

These particular process art activities are perfect for summer- many are messy or best done outdoors. You’ll find all kinds of quality ways to keep your little ones busy and have fun this summer in this list of process art projects!
