Casey Wiegand art cart ideasart cart ideas for kidsFun Art Cart Ideas

As a mom and artist it’s really important to me that my kids are able to express themselves creatively. We have an art room, that I keep stocked up with lots of supplies for them to make art with. I also like the idea of having an easy on the go art cart. These can be kept the art room, or add one of these into each of their bedrooms next to their desks. Here are some fun art cart ideas to try!

Any way that I can encourage creativity, and let their imaginations run wild, I am all in for. I saw this cute idea for art carts and I knew that we need to create some of our own. I also think that this would be a really great idea for in the classroom, so teachers take note!

+ A Cart +

Preferably on wheels so that it’s easy to move with them around the house. A fun color could be cute, but you can also go with a neutral that will blend in nicely with any space.

+ Supplies +

Various styles of paints, colored pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, tape, glue — whatever medium your child gravitates towards most. Keep these well stocked.

+ Paper, sketch books or coloring books +

Have a good amount of paper, sketchbooks, water color paper, coloring books etc on hand. Making it easy to grab and to start creating their own art!

+ Homework supplies +

I also like having typical homework or note writing supplies in our cart like pens, pencils, erasers, glue etc. this can make doing a project a breeze.

+ Various containers +

Caddies, cups, containers, bowls etc to store all of your supplies and to keep them organized.

+ Magnets/ Display +

I like to include magnets, tape, pins etc. that would make displaying their artwork a breeze! There’s nothing better than a home filled with art — especially art created by our children!
