Zentangle for Kids
If you can get over the name, your child is not only going to love this book, he will actually walk away with transferable skills. Zentangles for Kids is an easy-to-learn, fun way to create striking images by drawing structured patterns. What is the difference between a doodle and a Zentangle? Doodles are often random and done with no preplanning. Zentangles are deliberate. The patterns each have a specific name and are built one pencil stroke at a time. By concentrating to complete a design, Zentangle for Kids intentionally facilitates a shift in focus while improving your child’s eye-hand coordination and fine-motor skills. There are many Zentangle books available, but this one for children has the clearest instructions, the most motivating assignments, and is fully dogma-free. Enjoy.

If the thought of Zen in the title scares you, bear this in mind. Anyone who has ever cross-stitched a design, knitted an elaborate pattern, or calligraphed a verse has experienced that same deep-thinking, fully-focused condition with no scare of embracing Buddhism. Or to put it another way, if you are comfortable serving your child Devil’s Food cake, you should have no reservations on using this book.

Great art

My now 8yo loves Zentangle, and specifically this instruction book. She uses the techniques on other art projects as well. This book is a good fit for our family. I love that it is a unique (new to us) style for us to learn.

Artistic daughter enjoys this book!

It's a cute little book, and my daughter really enjoys the little activities in it. Glad to have it.

Takes some time

My boys (ages 7 and 9) really enjoy this book. We are somewhat of an art loving family, and this book fits right in. They enjoy learning the different techniques on each page and taking the time to complete the activities. It's a nice break between lessons such as math and spelling.

Zentangle for Kids

This is a cool addition to the artist's toolkit. I can't imagine forcing time to schedule all of these into one year, but we really enjoy pulling it out from time to time to make a new creation. My only real complaint would be the instructions not being clear on what to do - but it's pretty much a "make it like you see it" deal. The finished work is great - worthy of framing one in the classroom - and the kids are impressed with what they see they can do. It's a break in the usual routine and we plan to just use it for a couple years and then pass it down to my 6 year old. It's worth the price, in that regard! These are neat enough that you might want to make one, too.

Sketch in color

This book was great for art breaks, we tangled as a family! My daughter was able to choose techniques that interested her. Interesting book!
