Why Use Kid-Style Drawings?

In the ever evolving world of content creation, it can be hard to stand out. If you’re a teacher seller looking to enhance the way you promote your products, look no further as kid-style drawings may be for you! Below I’ll outline a few reasons why using this style of clipart over traditional clipart is useful. You’re No Longer in the Classroom If you’re retired from the teaching profession or pursing your TPT business full time, you may not have access to the classroom. Why is this important? The classroom is a way you’re able to have students use your worksheets and resources to trial before posting for sale. When you’re no longer in the classroom, you don’t get to see how students use your resources in real time. Even if you are still teaching, you need to be careful of taking photos that may violate FERPA (Family Educational Right and Privacy Act). Using kid-style drawings eliminates this risk, because these drawings are not attached to a student! You have full control of how you use drawings to showcase your resource to your audience. You Need to Save Time We all know that time is valuable and adding kid-style clipart can help free up your time to dedicate to other areas in your business. All images are transparent, allowing you to easily insert them into the resources you create in apps like Powerpoint and Canva. Say goodbye to the days of drawing, coloring, snapping photos of your resources, scanning and uploading to TPT.  Tired of Clipart Looking the Same There are so many teacher sellers and I’m sure you’ve come across many thumbnails that use similar styles of clipart. I’m all about the saying “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”, but sometimes it is good to step outside the box. By adding kid-style clipart to your creation toolbox, you get to stand out!  Be sure to sign up to get notified of the latest clipart additions to my TPT store. More to come!

5 Ideas Using Drawings

Now that you have some kid-style clipart, you may be asking, “Well, what can I do with them?!” There are so many great ways you can use kid-style drawings to create unique media. I’ve outlined 5 quick creative ways for you to get your ideas flowing!                                                                                                          1. Flyers Flyers, either being sent digitally or ready for print, are a great way to advertise upcoming school events. All kid-style drawings are in PNG format, which means the background is transparent. In the example below I have layered images to create a mock up of a T-shirt in Canva.  2. Social Media Make your social media posts fun by showcasing the products you share with your audience. Kid-style drawings can be easily inserted into your resources.                                                   3. Thumbnails If you sell items on sites like Teachers Pay Teachers (TPT), you know the importance of a good thumbnail and preview. Kid-style drawings help show how your resources can be used. Since the drawings are already made, all you have to do is drop them into your resources, saving you time from drawing yourself.   4. Websites If you have a website, you can easily use drawings to add a little flair to your brand. The drawings can be used to highlight a specific area on your site or even be used as clickable icons.   5. Personalized Products If you’re a crafty person like myself, I enjoy a good DIY! Even if you sell personalized items, you can use kid-style drawings to promote a sample of your products, such as personalized greeting cards, mugs and shirts.   Do you want to learn more about layering drawings? Click here!
