What are Art Burst Learning Packs?

FREE learning resource packs for families, designed to keep little hands and minds busy! Each resource uses Art as a springboard, but covers lots of different subject areas. The text is suitable for children aged 7 – 12, but activities can be adapted for younger children. There’s lots that doesn’t require equipment or mess!

  • thought-provoking questions to explore the Art
