  1. An easy, fun, creative Challenge that involves the kids,
  2. A great way to show off your child’s artwork online, and
  3. A fabulous prize that will make a memorable and personal Father’s Day Gift!

Kids’ art is uninhibited genius, don’t you think? Children freely slap chartreuse next to purple. They combine circles and a few confident lines and—Voila! There’s a self-portrait.

Daddy and Me

I’m so impressed with what my nine-year-old whips out with just a sheet of paper and a few colored pencils. Here’s a drawing she made yesterday, of her and her Dad having fun at the beach. Click on it and check out the little jeans!

Picture the pride you see in your child’s face when you display his latest masterpiece on the fridge. What if instead you have his artwork printed and stretched on canvas, and you hang it in a place of honor in your living space? Just watch the smiles multiply.

Kids Artwork in Living Space

That’s mom-of-twins and lifelong art enthusiast and art teacher Sabine Schoepke’s mission over at Sabine affordably prints the kiddos’ creations on high-quality canvas of all sizes—rolled, stretched or framed.

Children’s canvas art…looks amazing…inspires children’s creativity and boosts their self-esteem.

— Sabine Schoepke

Sabine says, “Children’s canvas art not only looks amazing, but it also inspires children’s creativity and boosts their self-esteem.

Some of today’s canvas printing technology is so stunning, that turning children’s art into canvas art prints makes each one of them look and feel like a little ‘Picasso’. You should see the sparkle in their eyes…!”
There’s still plenty of time to make an incredible gift for Father’s Day, and that’s where our Challenge comes in.

I thought this would be a great challenge for my 3 year old son to have fun with. We talked about some things that he does with Daddy and his favorite was watching the fireworks at Disneyland (he got to sit on Daddy’s shoulders). He used watercolor to paint the fireworks and had a great time painting – so great in fact that he was not at all pleased to be done. I managed to coax him away with promises of using his Buzz Lightyear laserbeam to get the evil Emperor Zurg 🙂

Beautiful painting, Jordyn! Thanks for starting us off. That would look wonderful on canvas; let’s keep our fingers crossed.

Have a happy rest of the weekend!

[…] My Kids Art on Canvas Father’s Day Challenge: […]


What an incredible drawing, and tribute to your dad. Thanks so much for sharing it with us all!



Such pretty colors! I can totally see the fireworks in your painting. Great job! You’ve got some talent going for a 3-year-old and I can see why it was hard for Mom to stop you from painting. I guess even artists need to get rest.

Thanks for sharing with us!


Wow! You have done such amazing artwork about your Dads and special times! You have all put such thought and feelings into your drawings and paintings. Each one is so special.

I am especially touched that we were blessed with seeing Kayde’s very first artwork!

Thanks so much. Just under a day left, then I will draw the lucky winners. So exciting!

Thanks for having this contest! I can’t wait to see who wins! The kids have had a lot of fun making pictures for dad 🙂 It’s fun to look at everyone’s artwork!


Thanks so much. I actually held the drawing very late last night (just after midnight) and will publish the results in a post later today! (I like you have young kids so I do much of my work in the afternoon/evening.

I appreciate your and your kids’ participation and enthusiasm.
