Free Canva Courses For Kids

Canva For Kids!

Canva’s mission is to empower everyone to design anything and publish anywhere. We want to share that mission to the homeschooling community through these free courses that we made as part of our own learning journey using this amazing platform called Canva that allows us to create and collaborate through digital art and digital storytelling.

Many of these tutorials are MADE FOR KIDS; and often, MADE BY KIDS from our very own WonderfullyMadeKids Homeschool.
