How to Create a Comic Strip in 7 Easy Steps Does your child love to draw or tell stories? Do you want to share your kids’ masterpieces with the world (or at least with Grandma)? In this article, I’ll make you a hero by empowering your kids to write, draw and publish your very own comic. It’s quick, it’s easy and it’s lots of fun. Why Make a Comic Strip? All children are artists. They draw, play and use their incredible imaginations to create fantasy worlds and characters that are funny or powerful or really, really silly. A comic strip is a new way to channel their creativity—to capture it in pictures and words. No doubt you have a refrigerator covered with various works by your child at this very moment. Does your refrigerator look like mine—covered with your kids’ art? It’s only as we get older we convince ourselves that our art is “bad.” When you teach your kids to make a comic strip, a medium where it’s ok for your art to look silly or imperfect or childish, you’ll nurture their creativity and imagination before it gets stamped out.
