Easy preschool activities

We regularly speak in robot voice and robot dance around the house. So today Easy preschool activities’m adding to our growing list of Preschool crafts and activities with these 3 easy robot art ideas!

Aluminum foil is such a fun medium to try out with little kids. We’ve already used it to make it to make this easy shiny foil process art and stained glass art. To make this robot foil art, I first prepared a “canvas” by cutting up a cereal box and wrapping it with a piece of tin foil. Then, my son and I looked at robot photos online.

I handed him some Sharpie markers and he proceeded to create his own robot. Once he finished, we talked about his picture and all the different parts of his robot! It’s no secret that we love using our watercolors to make art! To make this piece of art, we first talked about different shapes. Then, we sketched out a robot with Sharpie marker, added details with crayons, and added color with watercolors. My son and I made up this art game after we finished making foil art together.

To play the game we took turns being the “programmer” and “drawing robot. We took turns being the “drawing robot” and “programmer. Once the drawing robot finished drawing, we switched roles. For example, my son gave me the commands to draw “6 yellow hexagons. After I did this, I told him to draw “2 orange faces. We went back and forth for quite some time!
