Art Project for Kids - Simple Starburst Art

Some of the most popular posts on this domestic blog of mine are simple art projects for kids.  When my husband was a fifth-grade teacher, he did art with his students every Friday and I would often help him come up with the project for the week.  This simple starburst art project is easy, fast, inexpensive and the kids always really enjoyed it.

Please excuse the photography.  I took these pictures year ago, when my husband was still teaching, and used the flash because the lighting in the school hallway wasn't very good when I visited on the weekend.

This is an easy art project to complete.  Simply start with several points on your paper and then make zig zag scribbles in a circular pattern around each point.  As the patterns start to run into each other the students will need to decide which circle will continue and which will end.

As you can see, some students started with only about five points and some used several more.  Each starburst picture is unique and fun and it really brightened up the hallway at the school.

If you are looking for a simple art project for your students at school, or your kids at home, I hope you try this easy and inexpensive starburst art project. It is a winner every time.

**I used to call this particular art project "Sunburst Art", but my kids didn't think that quite fit, so I did a little research and found that most people call this particular art project "Fireworks".  My kids didn't think that fit either, so we decided to rename it Starburst Art, since it did look like the little circles were bursting, and they were the colors of Starburst candy. Perfect! Thanks kids for such a fun name!
